I am an artist and a landscape architect.
Since the beginning, my passion for arts has been influencing my choices. And so, I became an architect. But then, my constant work with landscapes turned out influencing all my creative process on painting.
The way I paint reveals a lot of my professional career, through the lines, forms and perspectives. The landscape project has many shapes, colors and textures, which can be noticed in my drawings and in my works in watercolor and acrylic.
