ARTIST STATEMENT :
Nature has inspired my collection of works. I have worked with watercolor ,acrylics , gouache, graphite, colored pencil, charcoal , digital media and glass mosaic to express my subjects in a realistic and sometimes an abstracted format. Evoking the vibrancy of color, texture and the fluidity of nature to brings to life these installations.
In my works that adopt a human theme, my focus is on emotion and how it translates into a universal language that can have a diverse significance for every individual. I explore the themes of harmony and disharmony, uniformity and Individualism that are universal to the human experience.
