ARTIST STATEMENT “Inspired by the finer nuances of simple everyday subjects, I embody my work with a variety of moods by using expressive color and dramatic lighting. Although I prefer to work in a realistic style, I like my art to be a passionate interpretation, rather than a replication of what I see. Light, Color and design excites me and I try to demonstrate how life extends beyond the subject limitations. Although I work on a variety of subject matter, I enjoy working on Still-life genre the most using Origami models and reflective surfaces.”
