I came from a family of four children. I have spent most of the early years of my childhood in the country side.To me as a child, my grandparentsí garden was a piece of Haven with an eruption of colours and a celebration of flavors of all kind of fruits, vegetables and flowers. That garden still holds some of my fondest memories with my grandparents, who taught me at a very young age the value ,respect and love for Nature.
Now living in a different country with a huge mixture of cultures it tends to break your identity apart. The only thing that is giving me the secure feeling of who I am, are my memories. My painting are an expression of identity; imaginary gardens and landscapes. I like to think that I am not a painter but more likely a creator of my own world. Using large quantities of paint, I am literally sculpting magical, fairy tale places, transforming the paint into physical plants. My intention is to break down the boarders between two and three dimensionality in the painting. I like to allow the work to be excessive and controlled. The density of the landscape also acts as a type of overbearing threat or beautiful repellent. My paintings aim to seduce and lure the viewer and offer a sense of happiness.
