My sensitive personality and unique vision of the world around us allow me to create in a way that can touch not only the viewer's mind but the heart. I continually explore and develop my ability to transform an emotional state into an art piece on various kinds of surfaces.
As an observant artist, I love discovering unique details and unknown sides of nature through portraying landscapes, figures, faces and experimenting with color, form, and texture.
I see beauty everywhere and happy to share my vision through my works..
