My work is the physical attempt at communicating my individual attitude toward life. It is a response to life as I see it. I think of each piece as a link in a chain instead of an end product. Spontaneity is important in my work and I like to portray a worry-free, self-confident energy.
The purpose of each piece is not to produce a final idea, but to throw something into the air. My goal is to make fertile artwork where thoughts can grow and the viewer can use my work as a launchpad.
