ABOUT THE ARTIST
‘My art is a reflection of cause and effect.
My motivation is to be a creator of reactions. I am a conduct to the innovative and to the emotional.
I intuitively connect to the reaction, creating and observing the fleeting and ephemeral metamorphosis.
I am the conductor, the performer, the instrumentalist, the creator of something living and dying, flourishing and fading – capturing moments of splendour for eternity.’
