"For my entire life I have been inspired by the sky and its endless, every-changing expressions. Its color transitions, temperatures, shapes, cloud formations and sheer vastness has always captured my imagination and drawn by attention. The sky's ability to cast an emotion is what has held my artistic concentration for almost 10 years now. Its emotional hold on the land and everything it hovers over, including myself, continues to fascinate me and drive my obsession."
