Artist's description:

My naive and whimsical semi-abstract artworks are about self-discovery. Each piece is a marker on that inner journey. The recurring subject matters are trees, birds, and a leaflike character; they symbolise life, freedom, and ego respectively. Through my work, I invite the audience to ponder whether the world, as we experience it, is an objective reality or just a dream-state. My wish is for the audience to respond with a smile.

All my paintings are made intuitively with regard to choice of colours, brush strokes, and composition. The images, patterns, and designs are sourced from imagination. I do not plan in advance when creating my artworks. There are no sketches, drawings, or colour studies. I start with a blank canvas and let the ideas flow; thus, allowing the paintings to take flight in whichever direction they choose. I have little or no control over the creative outcomes. Everything is visualised, outlined, and painted freehand. I do use tools like rulers, tapes, and compass for symmetrical shapes in some of my paintings. I never know how any of my artworks are going to turn out until the end. The work is deemed finished when the composition reaches a certain dynamic balance that feels complete.
