I consider creating works as a manifestation of what I perceive in my life. As a child, I was brought up in several developing countries due to my father's profession, being exposed to diversified cultures and environments around the world. Though I was not conscious at that time, those years I spent outside of my own culture became the basis of how I perceive the world, subconsciously collecting information that intrigues me, then storing it into pockets of memory. Those memories are then extracted at some point of my life, processed and manifested at a third dimensional level as the expression of what I am.
