About the artist:
"I make art, because I love the process."
Drawing inspiration from intersubjective and social issues, my work alternates between abstraction and realism. Through mark making and shape forming I look for new ways to turn out something that is meaningful.
Building upon my education in traditional art making practices, I incorporate new materials and processes that produce painting, sculpture and mixed media works, that reflect a meme of the twenty first century.
