“To give soul and emotion to my paintings is before all that I look for. I paint with my heart, I put what I feel and beyond realism, I try to have this something that will make it more than a photo. The work of eyes and light fascinates me. The eyes reflect the soul and cannot lie. Light allows me to give dimension and strength. I work hair by hair, so that the details and the realism are crying of truth and my paintings can deliver the subjects’ messages, their emotions.”
