“Influenced by my history and evolving around my thoughts and emotions,

my artwork is a visual interpretation of all that inspires me.

My diverse ideas originate in the complexity of my mind,

where I get to create something that is unique to me and free from boundaries.

Reality, imagination and abstraction all co-exist and need no explanation.

The unexplained is far more intriguing, as it resides beyond the picture plane.”
