About painting:

 Most of my figurative-abstract artwork is intellectual in the sense that it examines the mythology and allegories defining our identity and struggles in life in an analytical manner, sometimes revealing hidden meanings and the various aspects of life. I strive to explore the boundaries of figurative painting and abstract design into my compositions.

By the manipulation of color, line, and form, I attempt to blur the distinction between what was traditionally viewed as two different schools of art and compel the viewer to re-conceptualize the differences between figurative and abstract work.

I love to create. I feel alive while developing 'forms' ...experimenting, transforming, imagining worlds, situations. Inner feelings have their place in my paintings. Hidden sometimes they are, but in my paintings, my feelings are there to be perceived.

Painting is another way of thinking. It is thinking about what I perceive and then by interpreting those thoughts, realizing by plastic means, what I think. Conceiving, in this manner, a magical transformation of a vision into a work of art. Creative painting is thus a matter of the mind, of the soul. There are no absolutes in approaching the creation of art. It is an intuitive response to a very profound and passionate urge to create; it is truly an act of magic.
