My approach to painting is playful allowing memories and imagination
to come through and sometimes offering a quirky view
of my surroundings and the society I live in.
I make use of colour to create form and balance that
helps me deliver a narrative.
My work often raises contradictions and it has some sense of humour.
My artwork has many Spanish influences from the use of a warm colour palette through to the artistic use of patterns. The colour inspiration for my paintings arises from the Mediterranean palette, rich, warm colours draws from sun and sea. A blend of spicy red, bright yellow, terra cotta and ocean blue. My artwork allegorically intends to mix sand and rain to create a ruby drizzle causing contradiction about existentialism, the universe, society, culture, nature,… that encourages reflection.
Multicoloured geometric patterns blend with characters and own imaginary
creating a collage that conveys an open interpretation.
