«Purposeful steps guide me as I navigate through objects, searching for compositions and spaces that question their purpose. Each encounter offers a chance to uncover the profound meaning hidden within an object’s form and history. Through keen observation, I strive to capture timeless moments that surpass boundaries. By collecting forgotten artifacts, mementos, or elements of nature, I revive them as conduits for unconventional stories. As I paint and create, I invite exploration of the unknown, revealing secrets and documenting the intricate fabric of existence. In my artistic journey, I witness the extraordinary beauty concealed in everyday life, celebrating the interconnection of all things».
