"My art is heading towards passionate figurative compositions built up by expressive line strokes and layers of bold brush techniques necessary for certain emotions to show through. Together with this is my rich devotion to details that elevates the artwork’s aesthetics. The profound visual narrative and the techniques used aims to reveal the invisible within the visible.

Though I take into consideration the use of different techniques, I value more the feelings that I put into my works. I paint with my heart. For me, a painting is successful if it can make anyone who would look at it feel the emotion that it’s suppose to give. It is like delivering a clear message by touching the hearts of the viewers.
