ABOUT

Grounded in contemplative and introspective principles, my intuitive creative process stems from a deep connection with personal history and surroundings, transforming my inner experiences into a visually captivating narrative.

 

In my current series of drawings, I combine the emotionally charged intuitive brushstrokes  and deliberate composition when rearranging the cut-up drawing in a new abstract form. The resulting forms evoke a sense of controlled chaos, as if each piece has undergone a metamorphic journey, emerging from the raw, emotive energy imbued in the ink to find a delicate equilibrium in its reconstructed state.
