I am honored that she asked me to write down some words about her (I could write a chapter).
Portraiture and Design are my passions.
In my vision, they always can complete each other perfectly.
These two amazing universes feed constantly my mind with tons of inspirations and make me feel completely in love and fascinated about my work.
When I am creating and painting portraits my focus is to find the way of translating the personality, history, and energy of my model into my work.
Every portrait (classic or imaginative style) carries an interesting story to be told. I use my artistic expression, as one of the added values, to highlight the final result of my artwork.
When I am conceptualizing and designing my mind dives into the fascinating challenge of gathering all pieces of information and combine them into a neat and powerful symbol capable of branding a clear message straight to my audience.
Portraiture and design fuel my passion and boost my creative as if in an endless process of transformation.
When I am working on my personal project's (or my customer's) that passion brings me the joy and the certainty which make me a successful artist.
