“I view my artwork as an essence of life that connects all together. I like to work towards a complex purity of form that frees the work from a singlular perspective. It becomes more evident, as I explore work that resembles my most inner self; it begins to transcend my individuality to encompass a unifying facet of human nature. In the end, I like to feel that each individual work has it’s own life.”
