My practice over the years has focused on the concept of the voyage, its transformations, attachments and associations, especially when place interconnects with memory and identity.


Current Projects

THE RIVER
The river embodies an emblematic metaphor for the very notion of my journey, its mood and the nature of its penetration of the landscape. The drawings of the water patterns, formed by the flow of the river, represent a form of writing expressing an array of emotional responses through pattern, composition and form.

PACIFIC
Guest Artist at the “Museum d’Histoire Naturelle” in Le Havre, France, for an exhibition in 2018.Project: Botanical Journey.

INDIA
Following my travel to Udaipur, India, I am currently developing a series of drawings influenced by the “Jali” (screens made from stone, and carved in delicate, intricate and symmetrical geometrical patterns). While in India, I became fascinated by the representation of botanical specimens in the architecture of Rajasthan. Inspired by the decorative elements, I am also working on a series of drawings of imaginary plants that purport to be botanical specimens.
