ARTIST STATEMENT "Art is the only tool for me to be heard"My works celebrate the humans! The amazing facial expressions, body gestures, extreme enthusiasm to work, behaviours, and most importantly, passion! The rendition of colours on my artworks has the possibilities to challenge one's perception, perspective, and assumptions. However, my style is still evolving. "My style of work is extremely understandable and is of great importance"
