STATEMENT:
It is all my memories and impressions from my childhood particularly, somehow blending together in my head, that transform into my work. When I was a kid, all the characters from cartoons, toys & video games, felt alive. In my work, I want to capture that exact feeling again, not just for me, but also for others. A sort of escapism, to allow yourself to go to other dimensions and fantasy worlds to gather power to deal with the not-always-so-pleasant reality.
Through the composition of bright and playful colors, I want to awaken feelings for the beholder, and throw them into that secure and simpler world, one that it is utterly important for me.
