I feel it is essential for me to tell a story through my art. Life offers us all types of experiences that can fuel our inspiration and imagination. I convey the light and the dark sides of many social issues and existential themes; I leave nothing unsaid. 

 

The stories I weave are created with a language I have created, symbols, and elements that are interconnected with each other. Reality and the subconscious are my raw material sources. The world and our experiences bombard us with images every moment of the day and night, and what reality does not offer you while awake, the subconscious does while you are asleep.

There are inexhaustible sources of images to draw from, some of which go without meaning or intention from one side to the another but are accessible at all times; it only takes a particular mental process of openness to reach them. 

 

Ultimately, my goal is for the observer to interact with the painting and to invite thought, interpretation, and dialectic.
