I paint self-portraits because I am so often alone because I am the person I know best. Frida Kahlo

It’s not the size of the dog in the fight, it’s the size of the fight in the dog. M. Twain

I realize that I have left part of myself in a place where I shall probably never come back. A. Ernaux

A dreamer is one who can only find his way by moonlight, and his punishment is that he sees the dawn before the rest of the world.  Oscar Wilde

Humor is an affirmation of dignity, a declaration of man's superiority to all that befalls him.  Romain Gary

Painting is my playground, where I feel free. The moment I pick up the pen, I am in the center of both time and space. The outside world is behind the glass; neither sounds nor images… I have neither age nor name; Free from all adjectives, I set out the way I feel. Sometimes with a familiar face, sometimes with a stranger or on an alley… I am drifting from color to color, sometimes I take a breather in the serenity of black and white. Sounds are muffled, images are blurred. I'm playing my game.
