"Things observed then remembered are a starting point for my creative process. I allow myself to reflect and approach my art with a feeling of uplifting and calm. However at the same time, I know that effervescence cannot exist without melancholy, and elation without the longing for something just out of reach".
"It is an uplifting discovery when color, light, texture and space come together. My art provides me with a calm and joy, and I hope it does the same for my audience".
