Artist's Statement

Without the ability to actualize an idea or concept, art would not exist.

My creative work includes painting / drawing, photography, design, interior architecture. I believe that insights in art are supported by cross-disciplinary practice and I find that my work in one discipline will influence my work in another.

My work is a constant search for the best way to interpret the ideas that I have about myself and the world I live in. Inspirations and ideas change. Knowledge changes. Each piece I create  is simultaneously 
an extension from the past, where I come from and what I have learned, as well as a preview of the future, where I'm going.

If a viewer stops for just a moment to view and reflect on a piece I have created, then I have succeeded in my work.
