BIO

I am an artist who can create abstract and nature art in a fresh and unexpected way through acrylics, alcohol inks and digital mediums using my own unique combination of color, composition, and texture. My work allows me to explore new techniques to see nature and abstract artwork in a diverse, exciting and inspiring light.

ARTIST STATEMENT

Driven by my passion for creativity and art, I keep searching for new ways and techniques to express myself. At this time, I do this through digital art as well as using acrylic paints and alcohol inks. I love using the computer to generate all types of textures, colors, and compositions. I also enjoy creating fluid art using alcohol inks and fluid acrylics because of the sense of the unexpected constantly emerging from the fluid paints. The paintings are always unique and one of a kind.

When I create art, I look for compositions that are eye-catching and dramatic. I like using bright, saturated colors in my paintings to invoke a mood that’s exciting and vibrant so the subject can be seen in the best light possible. In many cases, I am inspired by nature to create the art that I do.
