I have a strong interest in “nature”. When I am in the nature , I pay detailed attention to nature by using all senses, vision, hearing, and smell, Then I come across ”something unique.” and am surprise “what is that?” and “why?”. I am overjoyed by finding something I had never seen before or by stimulation of intellectual desire. I like to create art by using "what is this?" and “why?” in nature as my inspiration. Nature has pattern and regularity. However, there are some inconsistency and irregularity. That’s where I find beauty. I am especially interested in plants and animals of nature. And I study them closely in depth. That’s when I find interesting shapes and patterns. I rebuild these images in my memory together to create my sculpture. You will not find the exact same thing in nature as I create. My art is abstract but realism abstract art.

What that means is... I make something that doesn’t exist. But you will think my art as if it could exist or you had seen it somewhere before. I think that sense can stimulate the synapse of the memory of the people. I explain this as "Biomimetic Expression". I want people to pick up my art in hand and look from every direction. Just like the way I do in the nature.
