Artist statement:

When viewers engage with my artwork, my intention is for them to discover a personal resonance, seeing their own life experiences reflected in the abstract forms I create. I aim to provide art enthusiasts with a unique perspective that may diverge from my original intent. Through the innocence and simplicity in my artistic compositions, viewers are encouraged to reflect upon their own histories and interpret my pieces in alignment with their personal encounters and emotions.
