Artist Statement

My environment and the nature around me inspires my work. One summer I changed my environment where I started to see the beauty in nature around me and I slowly started to find my way to bring little things from that to my work. I started to take photos and found that I loved clouds and sunsets. I loved the colors and the different shapes that clouds took. Photography will always be a part of my art even if I do not include the actual photo in my work. I just try to use the colors and shapes around me to inspire me in my work.
