In a general sense I find my inspiration in the personal and emotional as well as the interaction developed through self, family and community. In a general sense my works are concerned with the understanding of the human condition. They do not sentimentalize but speak of the human measure and what it means to be a “person” I ask the question "who am I and where am I going and where am I in relation to you?".
