The principles of yin and yang and the expressions of harmony they embody, run throughout my work. This is expressed through forms, colors, space, time, texture concepts.
Exploring and experimenting while creating is how I build curiosity which I feel is one of the best vehicles to communicate with viewers. This helps reach my goal of having my work be connected and a part of someone’s everyday life.
