His images explore a variety of forms, including human, geometric and floral in a combination of literal and abstract representation. The images and situations are taken from daily life and shown on the page with a dreamlike nature. In the inner realm he creates, the physical boundaries give way to a liberation that invites the viewer on a journey that conveys awe and wonder.
