My works are mostly inspired by my own philosophy of life, how I get along with the world around me and the way of healing myself. In my recent works, I use the frame as a symbol to focus and freeze the scenery I met, to present an ordinary moment with extraordinary meaning. As Eugene Delacroix said: “Nature is a dictionary; one draws words from it”. There is everything we need in nature to create work, but everyone has a different idea to “write a book”. All the colours in my works come from the sky, a clear baby blue sky, a sunset at the train station, a sad cloud… they all represent my mood at those specific moments and became "my colours". We all have different emotional connections to the sky or nature. I would like to see how my works remind audiences of different memories and feelings, which is another type of communication between us.
