I explore the world around me through my senses, and translate my impressions into artworks. My sensibility towards the forms, movement, and colour makes me a sculptor.

 

I believe that an artist can build as high, as his/her professional foundation is deep. Therefore, the knowledge and education should be the strong wheels under the vehicle of their artistic expression.
