My main motifs are plants in nature. I feel vitality of nature from wild plants.

The way plants sprout, bloom then die. I find fascination in every stage of it’s life.

I get inspiration from "nature's display". For example, when you walking on the road, you see a single flower blooming on road. The way wind blows petals or leaves, a water drop falling from a tree into a paddle on the ground causing ripple.

I would like to combine the energy and softness that both metal and plants have and put them into my works.
