Artexpo New York 2024

April 4 – 7, 2024

My main source of inspiration is 19th and 20th century Paris. I find the character, background, poetics, innocence, and elegance of this time to be sparkly like champagne.

Since childhood, I have been fascinated with the old sepia postcards of this time. The cards are mysterious and a bit theatrical, making me dream of escaping reality. I attempt to capture that same atmosphere in my works but always use a touch of strong, vibrant colors to bring life to my paintings. Although I experiment with different techniques and mediums, I prefer the traditional process of oil painting on canvas.
