I am a self-taught artist and actually trained as a scientist.
In 2016, I started to paint rigorously to re-charge myself so that I can work in lab efficiently and maintain my focus on my experiments.
Painting became my explorative science; I created through experimentation. I tried different mediums, experimented with different colors, techniques, brushes – any kinds of material I found. If a medium says, “do not mix with oils” I did. I used most of the time oils and sometimes acrylics, painted with gesso on oil paintings.
I like to create abstract paintings because they can show us something different each time we look at them. I like exploring a color or a theme in several paintings and let my subconscious and my curiosity take over the brush.
