“As a painter I express myself through bright and happy colours – or delicate and subtle transparency. I love both and what connects these two different aspects is my positive perspective. In my 3D projects it is the same, I work with bright and happy colours, or with materials from nature. In simple concepts which involve the surroundings and their perspective in optical illusions. Originality is very important for me and I work hard to produce good work and to be recognized…”
