Em suas próprias palavras:

The craft of my work is simple detailed and unpredictable. Limiting the use of tools I rely on my hands to transfer the true emotion. “Chigirie” is a Japanese art form that inspires my work. Translating to “painting with paper” paper is the medium used to create images through a layering process of hand-torn pieces. Embracing the organic edges Chigirie provides a quality of life unique to its’ method.
