I have traveled around quite a bit, and I tend to get interested in the traditional way art is produced in the country where I’m living. From 2009 to 2020 I lived in New York City, and I studied the human body, along with shadow and light, at the Art Student League. 
I draw, paint, and sculpt what I see in front of me, but I don’t feel the need to stay strictly realistic. Something unconscious guides my choices. Because of my mood on a given day, I might make a human figure vibrant blue or orange, faceless, or surrounded by ghosts.
When I work, I simply want to get an emotional truth. This truth might move or inspire viewers. Viewers might recognize bits of their own inner worlds in my work. A sense of wonder, a moment of reconnecting with one's imaginationThis is what I hope to create through my art.
I began dedicating my time to sculpture, as I am very intrigued by three dimensions. To me, the space in paintings seems limited by works on paper, whereas through sculpture, it seems to grasp more honestly and truly the reality that surrounds me and pervades me.
