Music. At times, it may seem like a grand explosion of chords from a team of instruments, and at other times it may just be a simple progression of solo notes. But nevertheless, they each will somehow combine to create something slightly magical to the listener. It’s a perfect balance of emotion, spontaneity and precision. And that’s what I anticipate to recreate. In "Symphony Series", I intend to recapture the essence of such classical music through variety of lines, colour and texture working together to bring alive the impression of music.

My advice to future students...

Have fun with your work. Studio Arts is a subject where you can truly create anything you desire. Don’t be afraid to experiment with new materials and techniques you have not used in past years, because regardless of whether they work out or not, you will always learn something new from it.
