Once all the struggle is grasped, miracles are possible."
My work is influenced by a Japanese girl named Sadako, who inspired by Senbazuru the legend, decided to fold 1000 cranes, hoping that her wish to live would come true. Senbazuru an ancient Japanese legend promises that anyone who folds a thousand origami cranes will be granted a wish by the God.
In my compositions I have painted origami cranes as a symbol of hope and resilience in the journey of an individual, from blocked vision to clear sight, through the patience to the point of wish fulfillment.
By applying resin art technique in my paintings, I have endeavored to capture the imagery of sky and ocean. The colors and effects the paint creates as it spills and meets the canvas represent the spontaneity of the moment. Resin art open up a world of possibilities and is definitely worth exploring.
'A woman is a full circle’. Within her is the power to create, nurture and transform. Here I have tried to depict various roles a woman plays to empower herself.

My subject matter includes botany, anatomy, and resemblance between nature and human actions. Through attention to detail I strive to communicate nature’s continuous beauty to viewers. The interaction between humans and nature is my main muse, and I hope to relay a poetic interpretation of the two.

I’ve been Inspired by Bougainvillea. Nothing evokes the feel of a tropical paradise quite as magnificently as vibrant bougainvillea plants.

Bougainvillea is a wonderful strong plant. The little bushes with pretty pink leaves, those vibrant pink ones that instantly manage to catch your eyes are "Leaves" not flowers.

Isn't this fascinating about these plants that how they turn some of their leaves pink so that they can attract more insects for pollination process.

This is their mechanism to adapt and compensate for their tiny flowers which one hardly notices or admires on spotting the bougainvilleas around.

This makes me wonder that aren't we all in a way, some sorts of bougainvilleas who are trying to turn their flaws into flowers so that more and more people can love us, admire us, accept us.
