"Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail."Ralph Waldo Emerson.

Years ago, while I was teaching a children's art class I inspired by a student who tried to depict the smell of fried potatoes in her picture. Since then, I have tried to portray what remains hidden to the human eye: sounds, smells, tastes, and feelings. The human being only completes my works when he looks at them and thus becomes a part of the art.
