Work

“I like to define my artwork as being multidimensional. It’s the combination of abstraction and textured natural and mineral products. I make use of acrylic, sand, and marble powder… which blend into different lines, colors, and shapes. My artwork explores the visual representation of memories deeply marked by the war”.
