'I do paintings on layers of glass and acrylic stacked together to create three-dimensional works of art. My designs are composed of elements found in nature, such as flowers, butterflies and occasionally the figure. My work centers on themes of nature, beauty and the fragility of life. I am inspired by the conviction that we must appreciate and respect the natural world around us. We live in a time when modern industrialization and overpopulation are threatening the very ecosystems that our species relies on for survival. As an artist, I feel the need to create work that inspires us to reflect on our relationship with nature and our responsibility to preserve the planet for future generations.'
