About the Art

Artist’s Statement

My works are created using a combination of watercolor, soft pastel, colored pencil, and acrylic paint applied with both airbrush and brushes. Depending on the piece, I may also include collage, gold leaf, or impasto textures. The materials are layered to create seamless color blending and a rich reflective surface that changes in different light.

The goal of my paintings is to capture moments and feelings. Instead of focusing on a picture of the occasion, I concentrate on the reaction and response to the experience, expressing them with abstract combinations of color, movement, and shapes.
