My works are an expression of personal experiences and realisations, combined with artist’s imagination and creative storytelling. Often whimsical, with a dreamy feel, yet the elements are utterly taken from real life. I create a moment which allows the viewers to see the usual world as a place to dream, to appreciate the simple beauties around us. There’s always an endeavour to deliver a positive vibe to viewers, to remind that beauty still remains in this earth.
