My work can be my voice without having to speak. Itâ€"s my inspiration, my passion. Itâ€"s my protest, my discomfort, and my search for truth. My works are surreal and whimsical statements of concern about some of todayâ€"s social issues, as well as, silent mysterious landscapes. I feel my work has to do with my interaction with life, memories, feelings and emotions, past and present. As an artist I feel that finding my own voice is more important than following trends and being motivated only by commercial instincts.
