My fascination and affinity goes out to the natural world. I marvel about existence and the mysterious role that every living and non-living thing plays in our universe. Experiencing the delicate interconnectedness of existence and its biodiversity on earth has led me to wonder more into the metaphysical realms. Exploring the transient nature of being and the nature of 'nature': considering life and death as part of a cycle, as well as an eternal coming and going.
I am a multi-disciplinary artist, I internalise and capture the essence of a place, creature or the forever changing landscape. I use different mediums to create my artworks like painting, drawing, film, photography, sculpture and installation.
With my art I hope to ripple a positive impulse and awaken a compassionate attitude in people towards the natural world.
