My works are an expression of personal experiences and realisations, combined with artist’s imagination and creative storytelling. Often whimsical and with a dreamy feel yet the elements are totally taken from real life. I love to create mostly still life images which are emotive and with a bit of motion going on. Beside still images, I love to create cinemagraphs! I think cinemagraph is a great medium to easily portray an engaging visual story. I love the infusion of a still image with a bit of motion, for me it brings life to a still image!
