Art is where I go to explore and express myself.

Being an emotionally driven person by nature,I usually like to get a sense of the subject I work with, I love painting from the life that surrounds me,its hard to match the thrill of painting En Plein Air.

I try to explore a dialogue between abstraction and realism and the “dance” or “tension” between the two. I want to say something specific about my reaction to a place or a moment in time,to capture the essence but not the whole.

My paintings are a journal of ongoing conversation a record of observation and expression of an idea,the life of feeling. I try to let the passage of time dictate the direction of each piece.I use color to express my excitement over the process of creativity.
