Tell us about your work.
I'm known for my expressive, colorful paintings that exhibit energetic abstract visual forms inspired by the human body, love and soulful visions. I am also inspired by nature and its unforgettable beauty. I am most passionate about the exploration of color, texture, and pure movement on a canvas. I enjoy using acrylic paint with feeling on canvas or wood as well as watercolor and ink on paper. I have enjoyed Installation art, collage, and drawing as well. The interaction of humans is an intricate experience yet when we notice the emotions and energies of love and peace and the ever evolving use of such things, my art can therefore express things that are unnoticed or inexplicable. I am happiest when I notice an honest interpretation and exciting use of color on my canvas because it helps express something special such as the connection of the soul.
What is unique about your work.
One of the things that is unique about my work is my connection to music and an expression of what music looks like to me. I listen to different types of music, depending on the feeling I have, and I allow it to help me transform the visual definitions of the objects, forms, and colors that I want to bring to life with an image on the canvas. I enjoy that connection of music and art and how the brushstrokes of color are enhanced with more vibrancy while I create.

Share with us the back-story of some of your projects.
I have enjoyed exhibiting at a variety of venues but I think the one that truly inspired me the most was when my art was selected to be displayed on large billboard screens in the middle of Manhattan in Times Square.
When I saw the image on a large screen I felt time stand still and the people around me felt a positive experience from viewing my work.
I enjoyed sharing my work and I feel that art can bring a multitude of healing experiences. Other projects that I have been involved with have been humanitarian projects for orphans in Africa, Ukraine and Japan. These were touching, I look forward to collaborate with more foundations to exude a sense of positivity.
Tell us about your upcoming projects.
As an artist educator I always encourage my students to “be the change”. An artist has the power to transform and place ideas in various environments. Currently, I was asked to work on various ideas for murals in the community. I plan to work on these during the upcoming summer months.
