About me

In 2002 I made the decision to give up my career as a Public Relations officer, follow my heart and retrain as an artist. Once I made the decision to open the door to my creative urges, I felt that I had to go back to the beginning to discover who I really are an artist. It was as if I granted myself the right to be free again, free without boundaries or pre-existing ideas of who I should be as an artist.

Over the years my experiences with different materials, styles, colors led to my unique colorful, abstract, dynamic and gestural style of painting.

I always try to go to my creative limits while experimenting and giving my artworks my individual expression. It is first and foremost the joy of painting, of colors, of the creative process itself and of the energy of being that drives my artistic creation.

Acrylics on Canvas or Paper


Nature inspires me. Also the marvelous impressions I take home from my travels. I do also express in my paintings the mood and feeling of a particular moment in time. Life itself with its ups and downs inspires me as well as politics.
