“I started working with my iPhone in 2014, at the time I did not know that there were applications for retouching, collages, textures etc …! I was content with Instagram filters! The first application I used was Snapseed! I always use it as a basis for adjusting contrast, sharpness, balance etc …

For the paint effects I use icolorama, which is really very complete and the preface is very nice to use! I love to mix several applications, looking for combinations is an integral part of my work and it’s also what I like with the art Mobile! My work is very classic, I do a lot of landscapes and cityscapes! I really like using DistressedFX for textures and mextures for light and atmosphere! Formulas is also very interesting for some images that I put in double exposure”.
