One of the driving forces behind my artistry is to understand and explain existence. This had led to the, perhaps, somewhat bizarre career of being a scientist while also being an artist. As a scientist, I study the intricacies of water colour pigments and use the gained insights to create visual narratives which meditate upon reality. A reality that is shaped by being observed by me. Landscapes and objects of nature are central in my work as I use them to explore the human condition.
