A consciousness about changes in the world began when I was a WWF Ranger as a child, collecting money for the endangered animals and nature. I felt sorry for the poor animals that are slaughtered to feed our mouths. 

Travelling is my passion and big part of my work. Then I discover new rituals and cultures which differentiate from my Western point of view. It's "The paint to my canvas”.  

Nowadays, as a visual artist, I am interested in topics, related to human behavior; consciousness, minimalistic lifestyle and sustainability.

I observe what happens in daily life and transform that into my own reality which results in still lifes, fashion series or single images. With these, I answer my main question of how we try to control our lives related to topics that have my special interest such as food.
