Artist’s Statement

My current artistic practice is closely involved with handcrafted paintings and drawings. The final process at times leads to digitizing handcrafted paintings and transforming them into a collage or print-series.

Topically visual character illustrations aim to provoke positive attention around surrounding society. The concepts and philosophy centre around cultural identity, values and ethics.
I also I design surface patterns based on own artworks.
The shapes in my graphical art are deliberately arranged into mathematical values ​​to create images.
