Artist Statement

I am always searching for the best way to express my experiences, memories and thoughts through art. I have found inspiration in everyday life, nature, cultures, languages and people. Today I use a large palette of vibrant colors, glass, and the power of heat, to try to catch vivid moments that will last in time. I like to think that my artwork will have a journey after it is done on my end and that people will engage with it, finding their own and unique artistic experience.

I believe art is what allows me to translate my feelings and ideas into reality. Art is my tangible expression.
