I approach my work as a fascinating challenge to overcome while capturing the essence of an idea, or feeling by organically shifting between media to further enhance my exploration during the creative process. The use of a circle, a sphere or a spiral shows up in my work and helps me to find the underlying core of unity, in expressing both my inner and outer worlds.
