As an interdisciplinary immigrant artist, my goal is to capture the essence of the natural world and create a visual experience for the viewer that sparks emotion. Using intuition and feeling I approach a blank canvas to tell a story. I use knives, brushes and a thick layering of color to build textures. Once a few layers are applied, I begin working on the overall composition of the image. At this point, I start to fine tune the objective of the artwork. The specific details start appearing through symbols, colors, patterns and abstraction. My artistic journey is deeply connected to my existence: to see, breathe, feel and respond to everything happening around me. My work displays a strong sense of artistry and forward thinking that is consistent across all my creations.
