I like to throw my thoughts at the world spaghetti style, sauce included. They are mostly about the creative process, about my work and life. This Substack is for readers interested in the visual arts and the creative process.

I am currently working on a series of paintings celebrating cats and our relationship with them. Expect cat content. Maybe later some ravens, a tree, a political painting … I don’t know.

I really like these cats.
