"Art is my life and I paint every single day. I enjoy creating inspired and beautiful paintings that reflect my feelings, sensitivity, and passion. I have tried different techniques throughout my career, but I especially love painting with oil and a palette knife. Every piece of artwork is the result of a long, inspired painting process, and I enjoy seeing others interacting with my art, and completing the art cycle."
