CV


Creativity is everything.
It is part of everyone of us and should be accessible to everyone. I like to connect people with art by inviting them to new ways of exploration and by unleashing their inner creativity. For that, I implement art projects in the community or artworks in public places. I also like to create a bridge between people and art, between the corporate world and the art world.
Creativity is passion.
As an artist, I use glass as my main medium. It is a metaphor for life and it offers endless possibilities: I break it so each piece of glass reflects the light, I use it as my vision of the world while I paint through it or I play with light projections to project the artwork.
