The simplicity of my works belies its intentioned impact. By giving equal importance to the tangible and intangible, to the positive and negative, I aim to create work that transports, exalts and transcends the everyday. Through exploring our connection to nature and landscape, we can revere not the only the natural world but also preserve a space for inner reflection.
