About the Artist
I am a Visual Artist,- Fine Art-Digital Art-Mixed Media Art- Photographer, Illustrator and Writer.
“I like my work to be lively, vibrant and energetic, to give the observer a feeling of positivity and optimism.”
I express these emotions freely, mixing styles and using my response to colours making unusual combinations of bold abstract shapes and narrative characters creating a fantasy world where happiness, and “joie de vivre” are at heart.
To achieve the desired effect, I will choose among all my favourite mediums, being paint, graphic pens, Digital drawings and my own photos.
Nevertheless, I work a lot with Digital Medium nowadays, as I find it fascinating how we can adjust colours and combined them to achieve beautiful effects. I love it!
Since moving to the Middle East, I have been greatly inspired by the beautiful light, and contrast of the landscape. I find this part of the world is truly unique with the combination of angular skyscrapers, the desert, and the sun all intertwined within the local Arabic culture. It is really at the heart of my inspiration. My latest ongoing series ‘When East meets West’ depicts those feelings.
I have also been greatly influenced by my travels through Asia, India, the Middle East and the US, as well as my previous lives in London and Paris, where I studied Law, Political Sciences and Illustration. These elements allow me to interpret and translate any artwork I undertake for clients.
