My art is the key to my happiness. When I paint I am filled with a sense of accomplishment.I love the
creative power given to me by my art, which allows me to experiment with colors, forms, negative and
positive shapes, textures, and light and dark values. My art teaches me.
Is my style Modern? Abstract? Contemporary?. It is not important. Call it what you may. I love exploring new
ideas and learn as I paint. My mission is to communicate to the viewers simply and directly as possible
following the directives that m y creative instinct dictates.
My art allows me to transform inner vision to outer reality.
