Selected Works


I started making art with simple flowers. I love the rich color and detail on such small subjects. Since then, I’ve moved on from flowers to animals, people, and places. The diverse and interesting world has so much to offer. New places have the best energy because it’s not just about a visual feast for the eyes, but the entire experience in itself. Synaesthesia. The whole world is my inspiration and I find that most of my artworks are reflections of what I have found as striking and interesting on my travels and adventures. I attempt to capture the world not only as I perceive it through five of my senses, but also through the many possibilities of imagination. As an avid reader, I love magic as much as I love nature. I am a fan of the works of Salvador Dali, Claude Monet, and Jose Joya, because they reflect reality (or surreality in the case of Dali) as affected by their impressions. Their artworks capture not only the tangible aspect of what is being depicted, but also the intangible feeling of the artist about the subject. I like working with oil and acrylic paint because they are versatile and easy to handle. However, I try to incorporate into my works some natural and industrial materials around me like sand, newspaper, electric tape, etc. I also enjoy the possibilities of digital design programs of the Adobe Creative Suite. But I still like going back to basics because there’s nothing like the real thing. October 2011
