ARTIST STATEMENT: “Painting is my passion and joy, and art for me is a celebration of life. My paintings have a bright and saturated palette because I like the freedom of not having any restrictions when it comes to color. My work is expressed through patterns in a decorative and playful manner. I try to incorporate movement, imagination and artistry in each of my pieces. The media I currently work in both oil and acrylic. The subject matter I reflect in my paintings embraces music, dance, nature, and architecture, all of which inspire me as an artist. These are the elements that bring me happiness in my day to day life and I hope I can share that joy and passion with others through my art.”
