Artist Statement

For over 20 years, I have explored a variety of media such as drawing, painting and sculpture, in search for essential elements found in nature. My recent work continues this basic approach of observing and interpreting harmonious and organic forms.

 

The prevalence of the human hand in my work explores the gap between human and animal and represents the capacity of man bringing creativity to realization. The hand is my creative language as well as my physical tool.
