The world is full of things that could inspire and motivate us to create. To me, everyday objects mean as much as the necessary ones which is why I incorporate these in my artworks!

I do so, however, in a way that is sustainable and earth-friendly by repurposing materials ideal for artworks. Experimenting with different found materials such as old wood, books and comic paper, my artworks not only have a touch of uniqueness but eco-friendliness!
