Painting is a powerful form of self-expression using color and subject matter.

I enjoy themes that tell a story, and I’m drawn to muted tones. My canvas is like a blackboard, meaning I can erase and start over until I see something appealing, many times the “oops” are the best and I keep them.

I feel success, when I trigger your feelings and emotions.

My tools consist of all size brushes, palette knifes and rags, what is interesting, many times I get the best results with my fingers and smearing, I’m a messy artist.

I’ve experimented with oils and acrylics; currently, I’m working in watercolor, gouache which are definitely easier to cleanup, but very challenging.

I am influenced by vintage artists and their paintings.
