About me

I live and breathe colors and shapes in everything I see. It’s like a borderless vivid hurricane spinning in my head all the time. New ideas in a constant flow. Inspiration comes from pictures, a song, a film, a discussion, a rusty tin can, the color of a bird’s peak, could be anything. And then it grows for days, weeks, leaving behind sketches, color combinations, Photoshop documents for alternative composition and a playlist with suitable music. Call it mood board and sample board. For me it’s to set direction. I buy papers, new brushes, pens and clean up the studio. My orchestra of instruments is set. Time to get started.

I put a lot of love in the backgrounds, always a steady and well-worked base. I use mixed media, layers on layers, watercolor and screen print most of the time, often shades close to each other with details visible only when you get close. I also work with stencils and spray paint. I’m currently exploring acrylic mixed with screenprint on canvas. I use stencils and acrylic paint, guess they don’t teach you that in art schools but no ones around to tell the rules so I keep on going. My motifs often have an air of freedom and power with a spark of humor. Guess it mirrors who I am.

Some days I walk the streets like an ordinary person. That’s when I share my visual ideas in graphic design, visual merchandising, interior design or making art to be printed on marzipan for cakes. Visual creativity comes in so many shapes.
