ARTIST STATEMENT

Recently, I have been thinking about my desire to live closer to nature and to be in touch with both my senses and my inner voice. The migration of wild life has given me a certain inspiration. My current series, “Migratory Birds” is exploration of their mysterious and astonishing journey and also the power that we have lost contact with in this modern society.
