I have been drawing and painting for as long as I can remember. When I was young I would always draw women in fashionable clothing, which is still one of the characteristic features in my works. From the age of ten I would save up for Vogue magazines to collect images I loved and draw dresses I was inspired by. Later on, it was my fascination for different cultures and people that led me to go study cultures of Latin America where I got introduced to the different aspects of cultures in art, literature, language and more. I complemented my studies with different courses with art collectives from the Art Academy.
An ode to women
My artworks are an ode to women. My works are figurative and show women in powerful movements or positions dressed in different cultural displays from Western fashion to ancient African attire. In my large contemporary artworks I emphasize women's characteristic features such as their shapes, feminine forms and looks. They often tell a story that could be linked to the society we live in, which lies open to free interpretation. As Bucchianeri once said: The true meaning of art is always in the eye of the beholder..
