“My work stems from constant observation of human beings and their relationship with other humans, animals, and their environment. I like to use my sketches only as a reference point for works made later in the studio. I prefer to rely on my intuition and I mostly paint from memory. Whenever possible, I try to bring humour to the work. I believe humour in art (as well as in most aspects of life), can alleviate the unnecessary seriousness of the world we live in, and gives power to a clearer mind, and, at times, an ability to resolve difficult situations. I am presently working in my studio on a new series of drawings and paintings for a solo show at Rogue Popup Gallery at the end of 2021.”
