Could you please introduce yourself and tell us how you started in the arts? and your first experience in art making?

How would you describe yourself and your artwork?
I use colors instead of words to express feelings and how I experience the nature in my art.
There are often leaves in my sculptures, I like leaves .
Where do you get your inspiration from?
By walking in the woods or by the sea. Water inspires me as well as studying people.

Happiness and mystery.
When do you know that an artwork is finished ?
