I was born in the family with artistic roots; my father was an architect and had taught it for many years, but a great watercolorist too. I also continued in architecture, my art interests were different &mdash collage in my opinion has a very strong and laconic visual language. I like to make collages; it is for me as talking and listening, like dialogue or reaction on the events around me. I do not know why I like it; I cannot tell why I like music either.

Now I feel stronger about my collage language. It is a media where I can experiment with shape, structure, colour and ideas.
