I never describe my paintings or tend to explain them. But when I was making my last series, I contemplated a lot my intention and what drew me to paint the way I do and I came to the idea that all my work is inspired by memories. I remembered for example, how much I loved gardens but never had one of my own. Through the creative process, this became a journey into another reality in which I could express that longing in a poetic way. My paintings are like windows into an alternate universe, formed from images that re-created the past in a unique and beautiful way.
