“Over the years I have found that viewers of my art often recognize themselves in it. They find grief, despair, desire, happiness and hope. Just like life itself. This soulful aspect of my work is the result of the different feelings I aim to convey, and the varied media I am able to employ, including acrylics, watercolors, graphite and colored pencils, in order to achieve my desired result.


I paint photo-realistic paintings, drawings and portraits, and what I call ‘Inspirational paintings.’ I get my inspiration from music, life and injustices in society. Whatever I am painting, I want it to be full of a true sense of life, so that people can see the soul within”.
