I'm easily inspired by the most usual, routine, and altogether boring objects and scenes we see in everyday life. On the other hand, I enjoy giving viewers a new, dynamic, and refreshing way of seeing these objects and scenes. In both my sculpture and paintings, I'm obsessed with details. If the viewer can get lost in the details of one of my creations, even for a moment, I feel I've done my job. In my sculptures, I attempt to catch the viewer off-guard by placing everyday objects in an unbalanced, seemingly gravity-defying position. For me, this creates a sort of 'movement waiting to be unleashed.' I prefer linden wood for my sculpture, as this marvelous material allows the tiniest details to be carved precisely. I sometimes integrate steel and other metals to accent a wooden sculpture or for structural requirements. In my oil paintings, I am inspired by everyday scenes that have a certain something that fits my photorealist taste.
