I create a world of fantasy and cheer
with animals, birds and flora in a state of
metamorphosis and transition. My primary
preoccupation is to capture movement
and create a surreal atmosphere and
mood. This story unfolds a magical abode
where imaginary elements lead to the
establishment of life. A beautiful connection
to the natural element — Water, which leads
the creatures to gather strength and the
forms exuberate magic for the Wellness of
8 being together.
