As an architect, exhibition designer and illustrator, I try to create a framework within which life unfolds out in all its simplicity and complexity, with its memory, context and composing elements. The framework usually starts from a sketch, from a simple understanding of the surroundings. I use drawing as a spontaneous and learning process, as an exercise of synthesis and interpretation. Drawings become my archive and visual diary of places, people and events.
