I am a self-made artist.
Three years ago I began exploring digital art.
This digital medium allowed me to express and depict the beauty of a human body and emotions in much the same way as I would with watercolors and pencil.
All my drawings are about sensuality and colors.
I start with choosing a background color. It is white by default, but it is difficult to paint on white, so I choose a neutral tone.

Then I do a sketch with a brush that suits me more to make the image soft, sharp or transparent.

To paint over I switch to another layer. There are many layers in stock so I can manipulate them. The advantage of layers is they can be placed one behind another.
They are like transparent papers. “So if I want to paint a forest behind a figure I move the layer with the forest behind the layer with the figure”.

My favorite brushes are charcoal, soft brush and dry pastel. Brushes are resizable and I can change their intensity.

I can resize the image and the detail while painting.

My relation with my artwork is complex, like a marriage. We have moments of perfect harmony, but when it comes to resistance, I must give in.
My work was also presented at The Luxembourg Art Prize 2020.
