When I started drawing Art I began to focus on the precision of painting and Art technique, and choosing the right object to paint. I used only oil paints, which required layers and reprocessing of paint repeatedly, in search of the right density, direction and color. It was only when I moved to Acrylic that I discovered the joy of spontaneity, freedom of movement, and boldness I had never dared to use before: vibrant orange, bright pink, sparkling yellow.
My interest in mixed media continued, as I discovered recently, began to rework my late grandfather's photo archive, which was a renowned scientist and dedicated photographer.
