ongoing progress...

Paint is my primary medium, ever-versatile in conveying the panorama of abstract sensations to allegorical narratives.  


Animals are the common vessels used to create a visual and emotional language of storytelling.  


Many paintings are idea collages pieced together after wandering around in natural sciences, sociology, philosophy, mythology, anthropology, psychology, current events, etc.


Abstracts are not direct illustrations but attempts at visually describing and celebrating beauty in landscapes, microscopic or gargantuan- expressing my affection/sentimentality for nature.


Knowledge of world issues and events usually sparks anxiety. 

My art process is a teeter-totting search for balance between information consumption and healthy peacefulness– 

Remembering beauty and art matter.
