I find the most beauty in mundane subjects that go unnoticed or are taken for granted. I am particularly interested in the personal connection and significance that such items hold for different individuals. In my work, I try to capture those seemingly boring things in a way that the viewer can appreciate its beauty in the way that I do. I love exploring several mediums such as gouache, watercolor, acrylic, and graphite as I believe that they provide valuable insight into different approaches to art making. I have also done some printmaking (intaglio) and have recently started exploring digital art.
