“My work is generally a combination of multiple media. I like to explore the medium and combine it with a layer of meaningful themes. I like to push the media beyond its capacity and work with it to produce a new medium giving a social message that may be related to our everyday lives. My subjects vary from children to adults both men and women to animals to flowery designs to socially responsible messages. I also play around with conceptual art in my artwork. It often has a layer of journalistic approach, look and feel”.
