Practice – “I like to look at things and I like to make things I like to look at. My work is sometimes witty, I like the surprise and visual tricks in art, I’m intrigued by different ways of seeing things, and abstraction. And I like all the ideas of pop art. I am inspired by the beauty in everything and anything and my quest is always for the zen.”
