Jíai mis toute ma vie ŗ savoir dessiner comme un enfant."

"It has taken me me a lifetime to learn how to draw like a kid" Pablo Picasso

Like Picasso, I have been trying the same with the help of my kidís drawings. Surprisingly, it is difficult to achieve the freedom, joy and lightness that generally radiate from a childís mind.

At one point, I came to the realization that in order to achieve just that I had to put my knowledge on the backburner and let my emotions and feelings guide me.

This has helped me with my abstract paintings but particularly with my new collection of Azaleeís paintings.

I simply enjoy immersing into a child Ďs world, especially of the ones Iím surrounded with. The bright full colors and amazing imagination of the material I work with make the entire process very enjoyable. At the same time I would like to point out that even though all the characters seem to be full of smiles, they can in fact hide a rather sad or odd story like in Pigeon or Choice.

Itís one way to remind us adults that childhood not only consists of happy moments.
