Our reflect the inner world of a child.

My paintings are inspired by artworks and fairy tales created by children themselves. Therefore, as part of my process, I organize a creative session with a child. In 2022, I am taking commissions from families living in London, and I am organising creative sessions with children during the summer holidays. Contact me before purchasing for availability.

More about my work:
As part of my creative process, I organize a creative session with a child where we playfully experiment with art materials to create abstract artworks. I encourage the child to interpret the ambiguous outcomes and then, inspired by that interpretation, create a fantastical story with themselves as the main character. Later, I use everything as my inspiration to create a portrait painting.

What the child sees in an abstract image, that reflects their current values and significant memories. Furthermore, the child’s story with fantastical elements reveals how the child feels about their current journey in life.

I can take your child’s works and refer them to historical art that can span from ancient cave paintings to postmodernism. My thinking process often involves Greek mythology, eminent fairy tales, psychoanalytical perspectives as well as what-is-art philosophies.

As a young aspiring artist, I am a big believer that childlike play is the most profound, original, as well as authentic form of creativity. It would be my privilege to have an opportunity to utilize your child’s innocent creative outcomes in order to produce contemporary paintings to the best of my ability.
