as a visual artist I am open to different series of work, keeping my creative process fluid open to a variety of ideas and explorations, free of considerations of style, the craft the quality of it, is the challenge I seek. Inspired by materials as well as subject matter relating to the human figure, lines around the body created by clothing designs and structures. The produced object has a sculptural dimension a decisive edge much like in a bas-relief. In this state of mind I have along the way produced works with wood, metal, paper, wire and charcoals. One common material to many of those works is the resin which is applied with different casting techniques, often born out of experimentation and necessity to bring forth the initial idea.
