Artist Bio

I am a Mixed Media/ Multi - Media Artist. My artwork is bursting with different creations. From paintings to pieces by means of spoken word, I also involve the combination of art genre to create something not only fresh, but unconventional. Over the past few years I have established a lot as an Artist, producing mentally stimulating work. The following pieces in the gallery are just a scarce number of Art pieces that will optimistically make an impact in the art realm. I create to share the awe and tranquility that I experience. I hope to convey freedom of expression and a sense of wonder by accenting different elements and small details in my work.

Mixed media, in visual art, refers to an artwork in the making of which more than one medium has been employed.

There is an important distinction between "mixed-media artworks and "multimedia art". Mixed media tends to refer to a work of visual art that combines various traditionally distinct visual art media. For example, a work on canvas that combines paint, ink, and collage could properly be called a "mixed media" work - but not a work of "multimedia art." The term multimedia art implies a broader scope than mixed media, combining visual art with non-visual elements (such as recorded sound, for example) or with elements of the other arts (such as literature, drama, dance, motion graphics, music, or interactivity).

My art is representational with a twist. Effervescent colors, lots of texture and layering adding a personal, sometimes surrealistic, perspective. Choreography was my first form of artistic expression and it is a joy to merge my movement of thought with the movement of my paintbrush, paper and found objects to build texture to create something completely new.

The best things I hear about my art are "that's how that feels to me"; "you've captured the feeling"; "I don't know where that is, but I want to be there"; those comments mean I've captured the spirit of a place, space or even a person. Since my intent is to share the beauty I see, if one of my pieces generates that kind of an emotional response, I am satisfied.
