"In my artworks, each element speaks to the whole, the smallest particle is necessary for the entirety”

As an architect, I spent years designing buildings and spaces, carefully considering every detail and material.

I had the chance to work in different contexts, from small offices to internationally renown firms, and develop ideas at different scales, from product design, to large public buildings or major urban renewal projects.

While working in the agency of Marc Newson in Paris, i realised that architecture, design and art could be connected, and part of the same creative expression.

This lead me to begin a personal artistic journey, and experiment with different mediums, from drawing to sculpture.

I became fascinated by the interplay between light and shadow and the relationship between objects and the space around them.
My training in spatial awareness and composition inspired me to explore the role that colour and texture could play in eliciting emotional responses.

Following the tradition of the Bauhaus, where crafts, design and fine arts were combined, i believe that an artistic vision can be realised through a close attention to form and function.
That’s why after moving to Berlin, i applied my first experiments with ceramics to large-scale murals and created commissioned works for restaurants and private houses, using standard tiles which i individually cut and fixed.

Using the same technique, i subsequently started to create individual pieces which can be transported and exhibited, aimed at inviting people to a world where shapes represent ideas and colours induce emotions.

Focused on the sensory experience of art, my creative process is intuitive and emotional, but also highly precise and intentional.
