I grew up in the countryside, close to the sea and the forest. I love the sea, the nature, the wind and the skies, and I was quite sure the wind whispered secrets to me as I walked along. It was almost like having the nature as a friend.
It hurts my heart when I see how big a problem global warming is causing our world. It’s destroying our nature, our animals and our health. So many people and animals have suffered because of the anthropogenic pollution.
I’ve always wished for my children to experience the same nature and world, which I’ve experienced as a little child. In my dreams, I've immortalised what I have so dearly loved, so if it should disappears one day from our planet, you will still see and find the spirits of the nature, the people and the animals in my paintings.
