My art is a compilation of memories of my experience with nature and architecture, every image that I have seen and the textures that I’ve touched, they all come through my art in abstract form either on paper or canvas. I search for the un-expected through layering colors. Like the trace of colors of an old building wall, reminding us of its past inhabitants. I unleash my emotions through a psychological landscape. Art for me is a place where the only requirement is to be myself, it brings worthiness to the everyday struggle of life. My art is experimental and an artistic release that I use to unwind and recharge. It is a refuge that is soothing and therapeutic.
