Since the beginning of my artistic practice, I have been creating pieces with a strong self-referential character. They are, mostly, linked to the reality that I live in. Paintings become vehicles, not just for the expression of emotions, but for decoding life and delivering my points of view. The work has consequently acquired a therapeutic sense for me.   The works are made in mixed media techniques: acrylic paint, collage, as well as objects and materials from my everyday experience. The result moves away from “pure” painting and becomes more of an object than a surface. Regarding the size, I work in a small format because it gives me a sense of intimacy. I call the pieces “paintings for a little room “ I am interested in creating visually poetic pieces with a high degree of symbolism
