Biography

My work is mainly inspired by the visual information that is daily fired at each of us, like on tv, social media, magazines, newspapers, etc. In my visual diaries I collect and remodel this information, I make collages, place images in new contexts and create new contexts, or new worlds, sometimes poetic, magical, bizarre or hilarious. Like Alice in Wonderland you may enter into a fairytale world ..
Since May 2013, I have been living and working in Andalusia, focusing basicly on theme landscapes, that are imaginary, dreamlike worlds.
The work is on paper or canvas in a large format, so the viewer can step inside.

Besides that I paint murals and decorations on ceilings and since 1999 I teach drawing and painting. I love to share my passion for art! My students are of all ages and with or without experience.
