Since I was a child I need to create, draw and paint. Most of the time I start from something observed, sometimes imagined to transform it into emotion. To create puts into action, transforms routine into a unique moment, sadness into hope. Each completed painting is "a birth, a death and a resurrection". I paint to shout out the beauty, the wonder perceived through an embrace, a face, a landscape, a situation, shouting that life is worth living, even with all its misunderstandings, sometimes its suffering, and that there is a positive reason beyond all circumstances. I think that art is not an end in itself, but the reflection of the ineffable.
