About

“Though mayest”: on being a free thinker
I am constantly developing my own style using what I call pictorial free association (for example, one shape, one specific color calls for another specific shape and color), always expanding the range of my abstract lexicon, a vocabulary of the eye.  The lyricism in each of my works appeals to feelings and at the same time, there is a strong structure behind it. It opens and extends emotions for the viewer.  My work carries deep roots in art history and sacred art, where I often find my subjects that I revisit with a contemporary approach, looking for that same grace within.
I want to always reinvent myself, while staying in touch with my inner self and connected to the world and what is truly meaningful.

“I found I was repeating myself. It is the beginning of the end when you discover you have style.”
― Dashiell Hammett
