I work with a combination of organic materials and man made objects, embracing symbolism, dualities and the exploration of diversified mediums. I am fascinated by the transformation of reality, which involves taking things out of their usual context, and bringing them together in new ways to create new meanings. The meaning behind each piece, is left to your imagination.
