My work investigates deeper meanings of being self-aware in the present moment, which is the experience of awakened consciousness. It portrays this through poetic images that point to a peaceful inner state. I view this work as Post Personalism; a contemporary art approach that engages awakened concepts in relation to human identity and artistic creativity.
I find inspiration in art history, philosophy, pop culture and nature.
