Usually my work develops in series which thematically form cycles.

I take my inspirations from my multiple journeys, out of literature and poetry, or from something that caught my eyes.

My pictures grow slowly, starting with colourfields of handmade colours of mixed pigments and added sand or earthes, recently I also use collages.

The final stage of the working process is my sign language, using chalk or coal or black colour.

Sometimes the series are titled, sometimes they´re only numbered.
