This body of work explores color, texture, surface, motion, and materials to deliver striking results.
My creative process involves mixing fluid resin with various fluid acrylics, inks and pigments, and then pouring and layering these one over the other to create three-dimensional paintings similar to glass. The different resin layers create a depth that, with its flow of colors, surpasses imagination. The very fluid nature of resin makes it so each piece is unique and cannot be replicated.
I am inspired by nature, crystals, beauty, colors, dreams, and cosmos. My abstract creations capture energy, movement and flow, and create a sense of wonder.
