I have been involved in a wide range of creative endeavors as far back as I can remember. Like most people, I am a dichotomy, thus my affinity for extemporaneous expression on the one hand and my affection for the well thought out on the other. The laboriously handmade and colorful expressions of ethnic arts found in my travels provide limitless inspiration. I see my paintings as stories that speak to life in all its beauty and complexity. Thus, each unique painting depicts neither the ideal nor a straightforward narrative. To fully appreciate my work, you need to understand my philosophy and my process — a constant interplay of the thoughtful execution of my mind’s images, then letting my mind go wherever my hand leads.
