About

In my creative journey, the element of water has always been present. Water for me is a space for exploration. At plain sight, there are no roads or apparent directions. So, for me it is similar to life itself. Vessels in all its different forms represent us traveling through life. Bridges have also been present in my work. They represent links that we have made to connect different passages of our physical and emotional journey through life. Recently, the human face, specifically the eye, have merged with the previous symbols I have used to represent our passage in this lifetime and the possibility of many previous ones. The mystery of our existence, the serendipity of the events in our life and with whom we experience them is the theme I explore through my work. The creative process is for me a meditative one during which images, thoughts and emotions are incarnated in the forms I create. Ceramic is the medium I enjoy the most, it merges sculpture and painting. The construction process is a rich tactile experience that connects my physical, emotional and spiritual path.
