In my work, I focus on simple things that are accessible to everyone, trying to find a deeper meaning in them. A lot of times it’s nature. Nature is the one who helps me find the perfect balance between the ab-stract and the figurative. It contains everything I need to capture a part of my experiences and thoughts in visual symbols, and thus create an unbreakable connection with the environment. On that physical, mental and creative endeavour, the creative process is more important to me than the final goal.
