I want my art to bridge cultures and traditions. I use color lavishly, but occasionally lean into a neutral palette when an image begs for calm. Like a slow dance, textures and elements are added and subtracted until the piece whispers it is finished. I combine technology with traditional techniques and materials. The computer is my brush and my images are printed on fine art paper using archival pigment. I often gently hand embellish with metallic ink and/or acrylic paint.
