“Art is my tool to explore emotions, express thoughts, and share ideas. Storytelling is the cornerstone of each of my paintings. I am fascinated by topics about the fragility of human nature, our own twisted past, life experiences and the environment that we find ourselves in. Working with bright colors and loose texture, I produce images that are often layered and pieced together. The complete vision of each painting only fully comes together through the final process of painting. Sometimes, morphing into a different story than from what I originally intended. Art has a way of communicating its own desired direction. I encourage viewers to look deeper into my art, until they find something new, something they hadn’t seen at first glance. Together with self-expression, I use my art as a tool for social speculation, inquiry, and the evocation of raw emotions.”
