When I started painting, I was naturally drawn to figurative art. I was later trained as an abstract artist, but I quickly returned to figuration. Figurative art allows me to express my ideas and reflect on my feelings and emotions. My subject matter is always inspired by simple life, everyday life, and people around me. I paint scenes that we may all have experienced, I paint familiarity. But despite this simplicity, I am drawn to the distress, unease, and anxiety that one may struggle with on a daily basis.
