    “Art is my voice and fingers, the tools I use to manifest the depths of the unknown and the subconscious mind. My art is the connection between the known and unknown, or conscious and unconscious-translating my perception of this crossroad. Therefore, it respects no boundaries, no conventional representations. In respecting the way of inspiration, there is no place for convention becase its sole purpose is to reflect creativity and respect the process of art, which is free. My art has no identity but its own, meaning it does not fit one category or definition, whether this is style, medium, or measurement, it transforms with time as I do my work and display, therefore, where I’ve been, who I am. This is who I am right now.”
