Artist Statement

 

Connection.

 

My work expresses the connections. They reflect my cultural background, social characters, loss, change, memory, and emotion. These themes attract me intuitively every day, looking for the smallest amount of detail that satisfies the truth of my theme. In the essentialist space of my work, others have the opportunity to experience their own reality. They look surreal, but they are based on reality. All elements are combined with the ultimate purpose of expressing inner poetry in my subjects.
