My art upholds the idea of my culture and environment. A reflection and extension of my personality and realities. An internal dialogue with the self, through contemporary human portraits that examine the human spirit and how humanity is revealed externally in powerful and captivating expressions, thereby sharing in my paintings what I hope others get to feel in their lives; awe, wonder, joy, freedom, acceptance and curiosity.
