I have always needed to express myself in a creative way mainly through Art and sports: freedom to create, energy and discipline to reach goals and dreams.

I believe "dotting" was an evolution of my favourite childhood games (puzzles and colouring books), as a different way to colour an image using drops of colour, becoming dots to compose the picture, like pieces of a puzzle.

"Dotting" is a meditative and therapeutic process: the drops falling shade on shade, to create a three-dimensional texture of dots which engages the viewer them from a visual perception to a tactile one.
