Born on 1st January 1970
I am inspired by a simple touch of any undiscovered story that is present in all things that have been and will be. Textures, paints, photographs and the canvas ignites a deep passion in me for presenting my take on life and how I perceive things. I integrate and weave them into my work, because I believe that life has to be lived in a unique manner as everyone is out on a different journey.
