My garden is my source of inspiration
The beauty and uniqueness of flowers in my garden never cease to amaze me. Engaging in gardening not only brings me tranquility and elation but also nurtures my gratitude towards life's every stage. From germination to blossoming, be it a seed, a bulb, or a tuber, the growth journey is always enchanting. Whenever I recreate them through paper or clay, I ensure to capture every intricate detail to achieve perfection in my botanical replicas or designs. Thousands of pictures are taken to help me replicate each part of the flower with utmost accuracy.
Big things start small
All of my endeavors stem from a spark of imagination or a solicitation. I meticulously craft the design, although some days, progress is prompt while on other occasions, a sense of dissatisfaction lingers. Each medium necessitates distinct processing times, be it paper, paints, glue, resin, fiber, clay, heat press, sublimation, graphics design - each undertaking possesses its own unique timeline. I refrain from commencing a new project until I conclude the current one in its entirety.
As a fine artist, I immerse myself in the intricate details of my creations for extended periods. My patrons seek collectible pieces that evoke a sense of emotional attachment. This creative endeavor is a reflection of my innermost yearning to express myself in a deliberate and attentive manner.
