I see art as a means of communication. Therefore my artistic expression changes with the nature of the conversation. I usually express myself through multiples set in ceramic installations that reveal my strong connection with nature and my keen interest in human footprints left behind.
Topics like climate change and deforestation, the global refugee crisis, and lately the fine line between art and craft are on the list of conversations I have with the viewer as well as with myself, with new topics added on a regular basis.
My inspiration is fueled by an esthetic stimulus and/or phrases and discussions that enter my world through books, radio and television. Making art is a form of processing this daily input and speaking my mind. Through beautiful visual stimulation I aim to open up minds of others and increase empathy, which is the key to peaceful solutions and tolerance.
Although my artistic output is just as divers as the topics that I address, my work always has a strong hand-built sculptural component, is often textured, and is further characterized by its attention for detail, its labour intensity, and repetitive mark making.
