“My work is about healing. I search for the nature as a way to connect with the sublime.”

Sea Bliss, 2021 - Acrylic on canvas D. 60 cm

"I am an EU / Belgian citizen with settled status in the UK under EU settlement scheme, as well as a Hong Kong permanent resident. Coming to the U.K. at the age of 15, I immersed myself in the atmosphere of this country and became instantly connected with the study of Art. All these influences give me a broad perspective and make me open-minded to many variations manifested by artists from different eras and backgrounds.

I firmly believe that visual language can be more powerful than words.

I graduated in 2018 July at UAL Wimbledon College of Arts, BA Fine Art Painting. My primary interest is to comprehend the commercialisation of art. That gave me an impetus to finish Art Business Foundation and Placement at London Sotheby’s Institute of Art in 2019.

Art has played a significant role in my life since a very young age. Throughout my childhood, I was always driven by a strong curiosity towards nature and its interactions with humans, which I wanted to replicate through my art.

Connecting humans with nature is the mantra of all my works, according to which I strive to blend the earth’s natural phenomena with the human life cycle. In this regard, my artworks exert the physicality of colours and the infinite ways in which they can applied onto a surface, by combining abstract and expressionist elements of style to represent the world in its natural form."
