Artist's Statement

Generally, my painting represents my emotions, personal stories and natural elements. For instance, I seek the re-creation of images that I have seen in dreams, the emotions involved in relationships with others and their individual characters, and my own interpretation of daily objects and the nature. These elements are expressed as characters, lines, letters, and symbols in my drawings.

I have two different approaches: dividing the space while ignoring perspective, and using the quality of the lines themselves. These show up together in each drawing.

I try to open each viewer’s imagination though the creation of ambiguous characters that are intended to be suggestions. They are open to interpretation from each person’s perspective.
