"Painting has always held a place in my heart since I was young. It was an outlet for me to express myself freely, and let myself live wild and crazy on a canvas.
Some of the works you see are inspired by the mountains and skies. I am so incredibly taken by the sky. All the colors and expressions of the clouds, sun and moon inspire me so incredibly much. So I created some abstract and colorful pieces based on some of my favorite sunrises and sunsets. I then have some neutral based abstract pieces. Although structure and design do inspire me, I recently found myself wanting to explore the freedom of painting I had as a child. Not focusing on the whole image, but the feeling. I would say over and over, while splashing paint onto the canvas, “what do you want to be”. Here I have two sides to myself shown thru these pieces. The structural and bold, and the free and chaotic."
