Since when do you paint and what are your favorite motives?

I started painting end of 2015 back when I was living in Australia and I love abstract works as an expression of emotion and colour and form.

When you create a new work, how do you proceed? What comes first?

Emotion is usually what brings up an urge to create and to bring something intangable into the visible realm. I turn up the music, set an intention, my body becomes a vessel for the expression to flow through.

From what do you get your motivation? 

The motivation comes from a deep urge to communicate and the believe of possible healing transformation through tmy form of artistic expression, for the individual and also for the world.
