My current work draws inspiration from the memories of my many life stages. Adding, subtracting, richly layering with subtle details allows me to express them while celebrating, learning from them, persisting. Each painting is my pursuit of errands of truth.

The reason I enjoy creating this work so much is that these images evoke the kind of pleasure that connecting to natural elements like water, minerals, stones, petals and wood does—a blend of satisfaction and contentment.

My portrait subjects tend to have an indifferent appearance despite the chaos, or decay going on around them. I like to think of my portraits as decaying propaganda posters. Silent windows to another reality.

The ethereal mix of color and texture that is created by watercolors is fascinating to me. Every time water and color meet paper, magic happens. And every time magic happens, a story is told!
