My work is based on psychology; particularly the repressed memory and personality traits. I concentrate on how people react to each other in certain situations and how past events in there life affect them at present. I create illustrative drawings using mixed media which consists of permanent marker, polythene sheeting, etchings and aqueous dispersions.
