About the Artist
I’m a London-based professional artist:  painting, sculpture, writing, curating, art installations, jewellery, up-cycling of furniture, collector, and restoration.
 
My portfolio of over 500 works consists of a variety of contemporary art, in almost every style: abstract, surrealism, cubism, portrait, landscape, sculptures, art installations, books, crafts and jewellery.
 
I aim to show in my work the value and the privilege to be alive and make it available for everybody.  I believe everything created has its own purpose, like the earth we live in – there is no other place where humans can share the same breath with animals and plants or drink the same water.
 
The diversification of my art enables me to reach out to people’s minds and engage them in better understanding about the world we live in.  Much of my work draws on the environmental transformations that are happening in the world and the effect that these changes have on mankind and nature.
