I grew up in a family who was very artistically talented and I have always been involved in one form of art or another. I currently use oil paint as my medium, and have touched upon several forms of painting mainly representational and non representational art. My non representational art, stems from my imagination, but I do find a source of inspiration from city living. I find patterns in the surrounding architecture. Those patterns are the base structure, I change them, play with them, until I find my own symmetry there, then I use color and texture fueled by my emotions to redefine the geometry. In my representational art, I offer an interpretation that I hope claims some affinity for the objects that I paint. I strive to construe the subject with a full range of values and a harmony of colors so that the impact of a particular painting may be shared for a moment with the viewer.
