While I’m still working in my apartment here in Valencia, Spain, I have managed to finish my first four paintings. These studies will begin a new series called Nasoki; a Macedonian word which translates to “directions”. This refers to the new imagery I am using as well as the departure from the Oblik, Ezero and Preselba series.

I am also currently in the process of finding a studio to work in. I have been to a few spaces including Sporting Club Russafa, Color Elefante and Galleria Espacio all in the Russafa neighborhood of Valencia. These are all co-op studios where several artists share one large space. Most of these studios also have exhibition spaces at the front at street level. Now that I have finished the small studies above, I plan to translate these new ideas to a larger scale and hopefully make that work in a new studio.
