"You belong in the most secret part of you. Don't worry about cool, make your own uncool. Make your own, your own world. If you fear, make it work for you - draw and paint your fear and anxiety."
- Sol Lewitt

My work is an extension of the concerns, musings and yearnings of my life. Nature, mortality, the puzzle of linear time and the riddle of the Cosmic Joker often occupy my thoughts. Geometry is the effort of human beings to understand nature. Its clarity and simplicity, combined with colour, provide me with limitless means of expression. Everything, however, starts with observation and perception of the visual world.
