Art is inherently linked to the artist’s own life experience.

We are not born of our own will but we can will happiness and fulfilment into being The meaning of happiness and existence is broad, and the ways to experience them are infinite

I have attempted to reach fulfillment in many different ways-to let go of relentless negative energies in order to summon instead a world of contentment.
At first glance, we may seem separate entities, but tendrils of human contact tug this way and that. They reach across from an unseen world into our more familiar, tangible world.
The path we embark upon takes us through both these spaces on a journey towards an absolute truth, towards happiness.
I try to incorporate this concept into my work by drawing figures that illuminate the subject, using my voice to share its story in a way that amplifies it and makes it resonate.

My goal is to bring out the subject’s soul in order to allow it to embrace and awaken.

I believe that the influence and reach of my ideas will continue to spread independently from my existence.
