LIVES AND WORKS
LIVES AND WORKS
As an artist, I am a story teller.
My work is greatly influenced by literature - a new book, a poem, a quote, or even just a single beautiful word.
For me, literature and art always work together in synergy. Literature inspires art and art creates magical stories. The two are inseparable; two parts of a whole.
Being a self-taught, mixed
media and collage artist, breaking the window of conventions and not following
the rule book has become an aesthetic habit.
My best teachers have been the mistakes that I learn from, and continue to grow further with, as an artist.
I enjoy pushing the boundaries of the various mixed media, materials and techniques that I use, to constantly innovate and experiment in my art practice, and to tell a unique story.
The sustainability movement has deeply influenced my art practice too and I constantly strive towards minimizing waste through creating sustainable art, with found objects and recycled materials. In the fusion of mixed media, collage and printmaking techniques, I have found a joyous and organic style that truly resonates with me.
One of the reasons I love collage so much is that even a tiny scrap of paper has the ability and the opportunity, to be a part of an amazing artwork and narrate a story.
My art philosophy: As Andy
Warhol said, “Don’t think about making art, just get it done. Let everyone else
decide if it’s good or bad, whether they love it or hate it. While they are
deciding, make even more art.”
