Amid today's tumultuous world, which seems to be on fire and deeply unwell, there is a profound yearning for moments of serenity and peace. It is this very essence that forms the heart and soul of "Notes To Self." At its core, this collection is a testament to the resilience of the human spirit and the enduring pursuit of beauty and tranquility. I look for the poetry of human experience, the essence of personal growth and transformation. Amidst life's trials and tribulations, we emerge stronger, wiser, and more compassionate. It is this delicate interplay between resilience and vulnerability that forms the foundation of each artwork in this collection.

The pieces explore the power of gentleness as a force for change in a sometimes heartless world. Through the juxtaposition of strength and softness, the portraits in the collection delve into the intricate relationship between inner and outer, projection and perception. Clothes serve as a second skin, offering protection and expression, while simultaneously concealing the vulnerability and depth of the soul. In each brushstroke and composition, I aim to capture the beauty of this duality, inviting you to reflect on the complexities of your own inner landscapes.

In the vast tapestry of existence, where moments often seem fleeting and significance elusive, there exists a profound truth: there is always beauty to be found. Most of the time, I feel rather small and insignificant, but every now and then, I know that the balance and harmony that I search for on canvas spill out into the world and change a tiny fragment of it for the better.
