“In my quest for artistic excellence, I try to impregnate my work with new techniques, constantly expanding the media and materials I use. I participate in International Art Fairs since 2023. My favorite artists are the American Expresionists as: Joan Mitchell, Willem de Kooning and Robert Notherwell.”
