Message from the artist:
If I would like to talk about my artworks, then my words will be summarized in the drawing of the woman who has inspired me for years to embody her in all her expressive states.

I draw using all the available techniques, such as canvas, wood, and collage, in addition to using all color techniques.

I always search and try until I reach, even relatively, the components of this smooth creature.

I also strive to show it in its most beautiful, symbolic and expressive terms.

The birds in the painting serve the idea.. the woman can fly and soar if she is free, and she must be…
