I paint in an abstract impressionist style with oil on canvas, acrylic on canvas, and mixed media. I feel more open and more related to abstract art. I enjoy this style of art the most because I am free to express my emotions the way I see fit. It's much more modern and allows me to express myself without limitations.
I find my inspiration in music, nature, and from my internal emotions and reactions. Artists such as Arshile Gorky, Wassily Kandinsky, and John Miro inspire me because they have created some of the most beautiful and creative works in history. I share their views and artistic elements.
Art is simply a medium for me to coexist with the world. It is me and it is a part of my being. My intentions are to create art that many people can view and learn more about me and understand the way I see the world.
I began painting in my early teenage years and have experimented with many styles and tastes of art. Over the last 35 years I have self-taught myself, pursued higher education in art, instructed art classes overseas, and been involved in many art exhibitions.
