The creation of art is a self-reflective process, allowing me to pour my heart out and translate my perception as something significant. Through research, experimentation, dedication and skill, I create works that are about the aesthetics of narrative. While the subject matter of each series is different, my work is influenced by stories, fairy tales, toys, emotion and the natural world. My mission is to make physical my interpretations of reality, and to identify the magical beauty of what I experience and live.
