After school I realized that I needed personal experience from the world to be able to put forth and create a significant and important body of work. At my core, my work is based on travel and exploring other cultures. While traveling, I studied
and observed unusual practices of cultures around the world, including my own.
Through time I obtained a deep understanding of talismans and relics and found this subject relevant in all cultures. I discovered hidden meaning behind most artifacts and adornments through ancient symbolisms, embedded prayers and geometric shapes. Now I create my own version of powerful talismans, symbolism, and relics expressed through my work.
