About fifteen years ago, I began expressing myself through colour. Although I did not enjoy abstract art at the time, I found it to be a liberating channel to express my emotions. I use copious amounts of gesso, setting layer upon layer until I feel that the piece is done. It’s like peeling an onion, but in reverse.

Cançó per a papa is a song transformed into a painting. The song is about my father’s death and the painting, Cançó per a papa, captures the mood of the song.

Abrazo en el espacio is also dedicated to my father. Abrazo en el espacio is an embrace through time and space to express everlasting love for my father.
