I make images that are vibrant in color, and abstract in nature. My work revolves around the use of color as a universal expression of the range of human emotion. For me, color is a language unto itself, a language which gives me the freedom to explore an unlimited number of subjects using my color lens as a starting point.

My work is about color and form .I have a great passion for color,line,and composition. I have never really swallowed the idea of following the rules when it comes to art. it never seemed to be a creative option. I realized that what i want is to really express my art in my own way. experimenting and trying new ways has kept me excited and enthusiastic about working as an artist. knowing my natural tendencies and accepting myself as i am has made all the difference in my journey.
