Since childhood, drawing and painting has been a way to convey and reflect on the multilayered parts of my past. My environment has always impacted my work. Correlations between human struggles and natural complexities seem to create a bridge, an intuitive synergy in terms of form, composition, and color combinations. Images of place and memory are integral to making these connections. I am always balancing these for the most impact.
Places inspire strong emotions and engagement with the process where I feel at one with my work.
