Artist Statement

Art for me is a way to relax. It slows me down and allow me to connect with myself and nature. Art has helped me to understand myself.

Inspired by flowers in people's garden and completing my collection of florals, I am currently fascinated to explore the narratives in the human portraits and figurative that connects and tell story to the viewer. The more faces and forms I paint, I see stories. Each lines, wrinkles, spots, bags and dark circles under the eyes, bumps and dips on human face and body tells story that is unique to each of us.

I am not just painting face and body, I am painting stories that is unspoken, unheard by anyone but you. I like to keep my brushstrokes visible and raw. Most of my paintings are painted in Alla Prima style.

My core focus is painting Florals, Faces and Figures.
