Besides etchings, I also create paintings and objects.

method  mainly one plate multicolored etching(one-time printing)

Every day,
I try to find lovely shapes
which are quiet , sparkling, deep and strong.
They might be the shining shapes of time.
Like prayer,
everyone keeps them deep in their hearts.
Like the power
of trees and flowers which heal us.
I would like create works which instill tranquility
and provokes an inner smile.
And I hope
my works will communicate with viewers
instead of me.
