Please tell us about your art.
I am mainly interested by natural imperfect patterns. My painting is subtitle with double exposure and thickened. Processing the material is key for me. I like to work and mix until it is perfectly in keeping with the pattern.

My portraits are a mix of blazing red with sparkling white, as well as bright turquoise which respects the warmth of ocher and evanescence of roses. My touch exudes not only strength and vitality but also gentleness;

I am fascinated by nature and raw elements and create my paintings in a changing, violent and free world. The Series “Earth’s Memory” show visions of elements where nature goes back to its fundamental essence and where its greatness crushes. The Series “People” tries to unravel the truth of the Subject. The Series ”Judaica” asks us about History and its meaning.

Choosing a creative or artistic path comes with many financial challenges. Any advice for those struggling to focus on their artwork due to financial concerns?
Stay focus on what you want to do in your life. Life is short…

How or where can people see your work? How can people support your work?
I have a studio in Hollywood beach, near Hallandale where I work on my paintings and where I teach painting 2 times a week. I also exhibit regularly in Florida, I exhibited in Spectrum during ART BASEL weeks in 2017 and 2016. My upcoming exhibit will take place in in Paris, France in May, 2018.
