“As an artist, I have the responsibility of influencing others; I choose to tell my story through images, and I follow my attraction to light, the same used by the Old Masters. I found a perfect marriage for the great passion for painting, drawing, and photography in my style of works. I create surreal images that are dark yet beautiful and full of hope, by using ethereal, whimsical and fairytale visuals. I carefully design, plan and sketch each picture before I start creating the final version of the photograph. Those works, heavily edited to achieve a painterly effect, depict wild imagination filled with dark, dream-like scenes with whimsical subjects. Each story brings light and hopes to the brooding melancholy we all have inside us."
