About

Though formally trained in Fine Arts, my career began in the software industry where I worked as a graphic designer, a user interface designer and a brand marketing manager. After years in the corporate world, I’m finally enjoying my creativity to its fullest.

As a versatile visual artist working with a range of mediums and techniques to explore creative possibilities, I rely on intuition and self expression, building layers upon layers of paint to create depth and history. The process of adding and subtracting paint is an essential part of my creative process.

Normally I may have an idea when I start to create, but once I get into the zone, I let the creative process guide me. Embracing the unpredictable results and spontaneous play through this creative journey, I am always thinking of how the different mediums will work with each other. I pour my imagination and soul into my work and it makes me happy. And, that’s all that matters.

My artwork prints are available for sale at Fine Art America
