Artist Statement

Painting is exploration time that has been a lifelong experiment. I often incorporate symbolism in my paintings, which form their beginnings from travels and experiences. While building many layers focusing on the elements of art, my paintings reveal expressionism channeling my inner self, reflecting on meaningful experiences, and opening up new discoveries. I work with a balance of spontaneity and careful editing, moving back and forth-from intuitive flow to thoughtful analysis. Each painting is a journey that constantly changes and keeps me guessing about the final outcome, leaving the viewers to interpret through their own eyes.
