About me
My practice ranges from hand-drawn illustration and graphic design to animation. I prefer hand-made work as I think it holds the promise of uniqueness and communicates more meaning. My method is both abstract and commercial, my style is versatile and textured. As one of my role models, Agnes Denes, said: “Art is a reflection on life and an analysis of its structure. As such, art should be a great moving force shaping the future.” I believe that art and design can challenge convention, inspire action, ignite movement, build communities and heal us.
