Artist Statement

My art world revolves around everyday objects and nature, where I find my consciousness. This as a starting point where I find my inner-self through recollecting memories and meditation which is then moved on to the canvas or paper.

My drawings were often self-portraits as it shows my being- seen through the object, thus when I draw an object, I become part of it and we grow together into one. This has helped me heal my scars and entertain my hopes. My works also portray the relationship of people and nature, transactions, love and conflict. In my more recent works, I have enjoyed drawing real life portraits rather than abstract ones and hope to capture the beauty of each individual.

I enjoy touching and picking up the vibrant feeling that the object radiates, and transferring that energy into drawing through brush, pencil, sticks with mixed media.
