I’ve been painting since childhood and I don’t stop. My work balances on the edge between symbolism and geometric abstraction, between the ease of poetic meaning and the shape diction of form.

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

At first there is an idea, a suggestion, I use to capture it as a sketch or develop it directly to painting. I work intuitively, led by the heart, it is important to feel the process to know the next appropriate steps.From what do you get your motivation? 

I get my motivation from the connection with my higher self.Your life without art would be...
