Statement
My vision is to make art from my heart and from my soul and to let my hands follow the flow from within.

I am a bridge and my work becomes a bridge itself through civilization. It travels through time. It borrows a little piece of something from here and there, emanating a quality, I dub, the presence of an essence.

My creations appear in front of my eyes like a mirage, fuzzy first around the edges. My process is to let it unfold, then and only then can I discover its mystery and history.

From the connection of one line crossing another, a circle touching a straight line, a doodle line becoming a symbol, I subtly orchestrate these elements that seem to gravitate towards a union, a totality, a flow of forms and lines creating an ensemble that hopefully touches the soul.


These paintings are part of the "MEDITATION PAINTINGS". These paintings are mostly uplifting, colorful, spiritual, and peaceful.
