Painting, to me, is a unique experience. Each work is a surprise and has its own personal and intuitive meaning. After brainstorming feelings and memories, each one of my paintings evolves freely and independently. Even though some of my paintings could be identified as figurative or landscaping portray, I ought to "label" them all simply as "Abstract Expressionist”; for each one of them is a result of my personal insight, frustrations and struggle to achieve shape, color and form of what I carry inside. As opposed to being in charge I'm taken by the strokes, free, at the same time unaware of what’s coming next, being almost impossible to realize when to rest the brush
