"My art practice could be best described as a travel through space in a sense that my journey is full of new daily sensations and discoveries. Reality is just the beginning of study to find and search for new ways to perceive unique world patterns.
 
My dreams for the most part inspire my projects. Spiritual practice, love and gratitude enhance my views and influence new works. Diversity of life is portrayed in various forms which I truly admire.
 
Art is a way for me to address significant social topics in an attempt to help launch public discussion and further study through emotional perception and virtual modelling".
