This series began around mid 2021 as our lives started creeping back to pre-pandemic normalcy. The viewer can create their own story, drawing on everything they possibly dreamt or imagined in this past year. These paintings express fantasy, illusion, thoughts, ideas, and all else one may have imagined during their time alone
during the pandemic.
This series began in March 2020 soon after the global pandemic entered our lives and put everything as we knew it to be, to a halt.
I created paintings that were a rapid expression of my feelings and emotions, using my imagination and creativity with texture, form, color and technique. These canvases express life and stories
during the lockdown.
This 2019 series of works expressed a desire to connect life and energy. An emotion that speaks to the inner self and reflects not what is visible but what is rendered visible. Energy that flow from me to the viewer via the canvas.
These paintings are about the vigor and spirit in an urban environment.
These are a series of canvases inspired by the majestic beauty of the Pacific Northwest and the glorious hues that surround us through the different seasons.

Whether it's an inspirational thought, an abstract vision or personal and cultural experiences, my expansive canvases embody and depict a heightened expression of my thoughts and evolve from the physical and emotional environment I find myself in.
My tools and I : When I paint, I feel compelled to create and transcend simple objective representations. I try to identify, assemble, reconstruct and amplify the essence of each scene thus enabling mental imagery. In recent years I moved further away from traditional painters tools, and developed a style largely assisted by the use of unconventional techniques helping me build and mold my images to recreate my vision on canvas. As I have for years been on a journey to explore these different techniques, each style gives me its own texture and contributes differently to the meaning of the work it was used to create.
I believe that in realistic art the language is spoken on the painting. In abstract art, there is no language - it's what you want to make it to be. The process is the same, the understanding - different. My abstract works strip away the narrative, the real-life expected visuals and urge the brain to work in a different, subconscious level.
Repeatedly I step back from the painting to appraise the work in progress from a distance and contemplate the next step. The process can take a few weeks or a few months until I am satisfied with the result. I look at the canvas and take away whatever experiences I feel at that time. Chances are, that on returning I would interpret the same work into a different language - more related to my feelings and emotions at that exact moment. An emotion that speaks to the inner self.
Over the years, I've taken delight in dabbling in various genres of art. What you have seen above is an insight into my world over the last decade.
