Artist Statement

I create my works mostly from my intuition. I enjoy the feeling of freedom and the exploration of the mysterious elements in the act of creating. The exploration of the mysterious elements in the act of creating, and freedom are the feelings that I enjoy the most. The elements that I am attracted to are parts of nature—especially roots and branches of trees—and portraiture. I like to observe different aspects of my surrounding and people’s conditions that we do not always see. Surprisingly, this practice has helped me break through preconceived notions.

My medium is not limited to drawing. I choose to use water-based paints and oil colors as well. I base my determination of the medium selection on which one is the best suited for my projects. I often work on drawings and paintings side by side. Mark-making and brushwork go hand in hand in my practice. Freedom and energetic experimentation is a part of who I am.

I am now in the process of learning about the relationship between my art making and my inner-self. When I paint and draw, I explore the depth of my emotions and unconscious mind to understand my interior being. Creating art is a way of exploring and reaching to my inner wisdom. The process of seeking has become part of my destination; it leads me to a new truth I would not otherwise have found.
