Painting has been one of the greatest joys in my life. My work is eclectic, and I have not limited myself to a particular theme or genre. I love the idea of discovering ways to express myself through art. In the past, I painted more traditional artwork, but now I’m more drawn to modern, abstract and minimalist styles. Throughout my artistic career, I have painted in oil and acrylic, but I also find joy in using other mediums, such as watercolor, gouache and pen and ink. When I create, I like my art to have a certain uniqueness and an eclectic mix with a view toward evoking a sense of wonder. Working with a modernist abstract style, I love using bright, vivid colors or monochromatic colors, depending on the mood I’m trying to project. Childhood memories, travel, people, animals, and nature have inspired me to keep on creating art.
