Artist's Work

In Me, a Million Universes Merge

    Work introduction

    My work bridges intuitive thoughts arising within, from deep silence, expresses it in symbols, through the
    experience of the relationship between inner and outer worlds. The sources of inspiration are from nature and
    the interdependent arterial network in the human body, that merge into personifications of figurative
    meditative forms. The journey is finding integration, through anatomical studies, impressions gathered from
    temple architecture and spiritual practices.
