“In a world teeming with vibrant life and interconnected ecosystems, I find myself drawn to the captivating allure of corals, those enigmatic beings that anchor themselves to the ocean floor. Through my artwork, I seek to explore the connection between corals, our fragile home—Earth, and the profound sense of belonging we share within this intricate tapestry of existence and the responsibility we hold to safeguard our shared habitat. As I dive into the depths of my creative process, I become immersed in the intricate patterns that corals possess. Just like Corals, we too, are intricately intertwined within this vast web of life. Let us remember that just as corals find their place of belonging in the depths of the ocean, our true belonging lies in the harmonious coexistence with our home—Earth.”
