Artist Statement

I am a self-taught sculptor working primarily with wood and metal. My artistic journey has led me to focus on figurative sculptures, where I create visual poems that explore the raw human experience and our insatiable thirst for knowledge and self-awareness.
My motivation as an artist is to inspire self-reflection and deeper connections with the world. I believe art has the power to spark conversations and awaken dormant passions. Just as poets use words to convey emotion and meaning, my sculptures are my poems, each telling a unique story and inviting viewers to embark on their own journeys of exploration and enlightenment.
In essence, my art is a celebration of humanity’s constant dialogue with the world, a testament to our unending pursuit of self-realization.
