Biography

Artist Statement

My artwork is structured around music, symbolism, myths and philosophy both ancient and modern. My inspiration

comes from a divine intelligence, often associated with message I receive in a meditative state. I create my artworks by using glass, an ancient Roman finding by Phoenician merchants from about 5 000BC, which I fuse with lightweight modern industrial Mild-Steel piping and sheet metal.

Symbols emphasize on emotion and creates meaning within a story. I believe that all symbols significantly represent something. The main symbolic motif in my work is the tuning fork which represents the subconscious mind and thehermetic principle of vibration.
