Artexpo New York 2024

April 4 – 7, 2024

I create mixed-media pieces using natural elements like recycled wood, stone, metal, and flowers. Sourcing recyclable and reusable materials, I reshape and repurpose these items to depict images of energy and vitality. I show how items that are discarded and deemed useless can carry a profound meaning. My art brings to life the importance of recycling and decreasing the carbon footprint for the survival of the earth and humanity.
