Ever since I was little I've messed with glitter, clay, glue and colors.
Ten years ago I totally got caught in the beauty and fragility of Oysters and started to depict them with watercolor.
I think I have an eye to see the beauty in things. I find it easy to pause, capture the moment and feel it,
just as it was when I first saw an oyster. The time stopped for a few seconds, I saw all colors, this
sensual sea creature that lay in a bed of crystal pearl colors. The inside so fragile and beautiful and on
the outside so raw and hard, like a shell that is somehow difficult to penetrate, that protects,
consciously or unconsciously. That kind of contrast fascinates me.
In some way i think they are much like us. Within a hard 'shell' we sometimes hide our 'inner child', our
sensual being and our most vulnerable parts. I think that we want to hide this because we might be
afraid of not getting accepted for who we are, afraid of being hurt or misunderstood. Two sides forced
to live together. I think this is something all people on Earth can relate to.
I want to show you what I perceive and feel. And share the beauty that i see and sense.
