The ideas for these creations come to me from anywhere at any given time: when I meet with a new person, visit a new place, walk in nature or when I wake up in the morning. The designs are very clear and they stay stuck in my head until I paint them on a canevas. I cannot pretend to know, nor to be able to explain the deep meaning of each painting. I think people should trust more their instincts when it comes to art, travel in the paintings and let themselves go with the flow of any emotions that rises within them.
As crazy as it sounds, abstract painting and still life are almost the same. From close, any object and landscape is just abstract strokes of brush and spots different colors. The challenge is to makes these randoms shapes look like a photograph. From shiny cars to reflexions on the eyes or hair, it’s all about painting light.
Dreamcatcher are mythical objects carrying a big symbolic. It says they filter the energy, letting only the good ones pass through. Mire are not be made of wood or leather. They carry bold colors, feathers, ribbons and I like to add crystal in them. They enhance a room, bring colors and with the crystal, they have a special vibe. I wish you will enjoy them as much as I do when I’m making them.
At first, making jewelry was an excuse to play with stones and crystal. I also always liked to play with feather (I guess that’s why I make dreamcatchers) so I mixed the materials. The wire wrapping is an art but done properly, it can make stunning pieces. I feel like I still have a lot to learn with the wire. I will put here the pieces I am the most proud of.
