“Abstract art is not about doing its about being. It is not part of cognitive reasoning, it’s a new limitless experience.” My paintings are inspired by people nature and life’s journey. The organic forms shapes and energy I observe fuel my subconscious and its spirit is manifested in my art. I work very spontaneous and capture the essence of my subjects then over time, apply many layers on my work giving it a very authentic timeless feel. I like for the viewer to be drawn in and make an emotional connection. Overall my art is a celebration of life.
