Artist Statement

My art is about feelings, emotions, impressions of the mind. The human mind has always fascinated me. I paint what I feel and sense, not what I see in the material world. Colors, rich and intense, free flowing styles, express my inner thoughts and I translate them on the canvas. Art has to have a narrative, excite the viewers, intrigue them to make them want to explore the artist's mind through the paintings.
