Since the beginning of my studies, I have focused primarily on figurative painting. I use acrylic paints of subtle pastel hues. In my first years, I focused on real figures and painted on the basis of photographs, but over time my work loosened up and acquired a more expressive form. I have always worked with what I know, and so the source of my work has been my family, my siblings and myself. I come from a Catholic family, and faith is also somehow reflected in my works. I depict the spiritual and intellectual side of my identity and explore the boundaries between the physical body and the incomprehensible inner essence. The figures in my paintings thus end up outside of reality, and I create abstractions consisting of pure fields of colour that I intuitively place next to one another and that still contain a figure.
