"In nature a supreme harmony can be found for all people around the world to admire. Created by gathering branches through walks in the forest and then transformed into bronze, my sculptures invite us to reflect on the beauty of the natural world and our humanity. I often use the universal symbol of the house in my work as a means to evoke thought. Nature, dreams and art have no boundaries. Peace, harmony and freedom are awaiting for us to discover in each other and our world through contemplation of what is beautiful."
