I identify myself as a multidisciplinary artist. I am not tied down to one medium as I find that different mediums offer me different solutions

For example painting allows me use a certain style to portray the aesthetic fascinations I have with topics like religion, lucid dreaming and the extraterrastrial.
Through realistic painting, I can easily depict the very visual obsessions I have with kitsch culture, low budget films, eccentric gypsy lifestyles, and everything in between.

For me, setting up these worlds through installation or sculpture on the other hand, invites an audience to participate in the feelings we associate with these worlds.
