I wish for my art to create a universe from a viewpoint of peace and tranquillity. I intend for my works to be expressive and passionate while delicate in shape and composition. I very much like to work with colours and spend quality time on the execution but also on the concepts that I am trying to communicate eloquently. I believe that my work can be defined as "Art of the Mind" but also as "Art of the Spirit", touching upon ideas and sentiments that are important and too often neglected. I like my work to be able to speak to and intrigue the viewer.
