"Painting is my passion and I paint full time in my San Jose studio at The Alameda Artworks. I strive to simplify and capture the essence of my subject using complex layers which I create using acrylic paints and collage papers. I enjoy searching for papers that have interesting text, images and textures and then incorporating them into my work. My love of texture, pattern, shape and color is reflected in my work.
I am fascinated by and especially drawn to the architecture, structures and skyline of San Francisco. I am also drawn to abstract figurative painting.My goal is to capture the essence of this beautiful city or a figure using minimalism and abstraction. For me working on a painting is like trying to solve a puzzle, challenging at times, meditative and extremely satisfying when the puzzle is solved."
