My artwork evolved from a purely physical form of painting, to working with digital art, animation, and recently post-digital painting. An art form conceptually shaped by the internet and digital processes, but insisting on bringing materiality to it. Thoughts and ideas flow from a time scale that includes my ancestors, current events, ideas found in nature, historical documents, world travel and scientific publications.

Depict a complex and changing reality intersected by art, science, and humanity. The themes include ecological and social changes in our planet’s natural environment. The images display layers of harmonious colors, light and shadows,but include dissonant elements peeking audience's interest to explore more.
