My artwork is a process of using color and texture to tell a story. I let myself be guided by the color combination I choose, be it muted tones or bright primary hues. At times, the stories are abstract with linear lines. Other times, I paint figures that have movement and grace. In the past year, I have adopted an abstract expressionist style as a way to form an intimate connection with the viewer and elicit an emotional response.
Although I am partial to inks and acrylic paint, I always experiment with new mediums and try out unconventional techniques that work together to tell a story. I develop complex narratives and textures through multiple layers of paint, sometimes using old paintings as support, to convey the feeling that there are secrets hidden beneath the surface. I like the idea of two different pieces overlapping and merging into one another to form a stronger whole.
My palette varies intuitively depending on my emotions or surroundings. Paint has its own path and I tend to follow where it wants to flow.
