My art is composed of botany, animals and human figures. 
I am exploring what the earth has to offer through my art, seeing nature in different aspects and interpreting in my own creative worlds in every piece.
Have you ever felt the need to travel to a whimsical, colourful place that feels harmonised.  I am drawn to mother nature in every aspect and how it can vary from one place to another. Experiencing the differentiations of their origins, whether this maybe a plant life or an animal. We are visitors of the earth. I want people to be aware with the problems of our environment, I approach the subject matter with a holistic mindset. I am trying to combine my passions and fantasies on the canvas by addressing problems that we are facing in a mindful way through surrealist imagery. I combine the human species with other species on my pieces, showing the relationship that we have. Mother Nature is so much larger than we are.
