"Throughout my artistic journey, I have retained a fascination for small details, the interplay of light, color, and textures. I depict natural settings in my current work and try to find a way to present each plant or animal in an environment that seems real and yet shows it off in an artistic composition. It is my hope that my paperweights catch the interest of the viewer and entice him into my tiny world to look in ever greater detail."
