Artist Statement

My work happens in-between the act of spontaneity and preconceived

ideas and thoughts. My art process is triggered through responses and reactions to my

surrounding environment and is inspired by day-to-day life experiences.

The act of creation begins spontaneously, travels through mundane

experiences, memories, and meets with the idea that refers to the age we

are living in. Equally, my art also begins with an idea, metamorphoses

intuitively, and travels through moment-to-moment experience of creation which ultimately evolves into a dialogue within mediums and materials. This results in the becoming of its own unique being, thus detaching itself from “my creation” and instead, inviting the viewer to interact with and develop a sense of belonging with the creation or an idea.
