Growing up surrounded by the wonders of nature, I was drawn to the world of the sea. I can still clearly remember when I first discovered that the world under the water mirrored the world above it. Rising from the ocean, I turned to the world of music, and from there to the mountains.
Sound offers purity, pleasure and prayer. Nature offers wisdom.
From nature and sound, my illumination is born.

In 2000, I began creating illumination with natural materials. I have done decorative lighting for live performances, concerts, parties and outdoor events. At the same time
I have choreographed illumination for stores and residences. I use illumination to express my respect for nature.
