About My Art:
I use a deep appreciation for the beauty of unnoticed moments, thoughts and the spiritual essence, which is contained in the human life. From the simplicity of a touch, to the chaos of the emotions instilled by it, I take in life all around me to reveal its innermost workings. Considering myself an aesthete and antevasin (which is Sanskrit for, “one who lives at the border”), I live to take in all forms of beauty, and through the cerebral discharge of my mind, express them. In using various medias such as found objects, wood, cardboard, fabric, canvas, metal and clay, I gain appreciation for working with all forms. In combination with my various medias, I use illustrative techniques and styles of drawing and painting.
