My artistry is characterized by an eclectic style, driven by a myriad of inspirations, including personal experiences and observations, my family, and the breathtaking coastal and mountainous surroundings where I live. Ranging from representational to abstract, my paintings cover diverse subject matter, leaving room to evoke a variety of emotions and interpretations. For this series of artwork, vibrant colors, textures, and abstract organic shapes come together in unique compositions.
