Welcome to my world of visual expression

I create as a way to interpret and reflect on my reality. Each work has a story, one of the many I see during the work of layering paints and by analyzing textures, shades, and lights. I strive to create an aura surrounding the painting which opens the doors and allows the viewer to be taken in.

My artwork represents figures, faces, or places that are captured to suggest possibilities – stories behind the surface. Water, playing a prominent role, offers the subject the unique gift of privacy and introspection.  

Through my work, I hope to capture your attention and then invite you to imagine and interpret what is going on and create your own personal narrative within the artwork. 




My goal is to create a moment of reflection, ponder what is going on in the painting, reflect and draw your own unique conclusions.

Pencil, charcoal, graphite, and a mixture of water and glue allow me to build on layer after layer adding texture and depth.
