Artist Statement

Art in a public space arouses inspiration, captures our imagination, and has the ability to ease our stress. It also has the power to shape our consciousness by energizing our spirit, stimulate our thinking while creating bonds between strangers, enabling children to ask questions and become more curious and aware of their environment. My work is by nature whimsical, witty and playful. It brings around joy to your heart, happiness to your soul and a constructive twist to life, while keeping an aesthetic ambiance to its surroundings.
