While much of my work is traditional and objective, I’ll occasionally give my paintings an unexpected twist or paint something from a different point of view.
For inspiration I’ll sometimes buy a frame and keep it in view until I’m inspired with exactly the right image to fill that space; my own kind of artistic ‘reverse engineering.’
Tasteful colors that blend well together, capturing the essence of a subject, is an exciting journey in the making of an attractive painting. My goal is to create something I am proud of whether in watercolor or pastel. I can be reached by email
My art work is a process of self-healing. For me, painting is a respite
and heal, allowing the mind to relax and leave behind worry and struggle. My practice is rooted in overcoming
trauma and adversity.

Coming from a multicultural background, I find art a language that is spoken universally. There is something so special in the way expressions are translated from the souls to each piece. My art, when it is abstract, is usually an emotional reflection.
While my medium of choice has always been acrylics and oils, I have rediscovered watercolors. To my delight, it has inspired some very interesting pieces. I enjoy painting people, abstract, and more recently, modern Islamic calligraphy.
