© 2006-2015.. I am a self-taught artist... I am inspired by life in general, but mostly by nature. I like to portray characters, symbols, and natural phenomena that coexist in a world of peace, harmony, and mutual consolation. Recently, I decided to expand my interpretation of what I see into an abstract composition. Majority of my paintings are complex, detailed, colorful, and chaotic, but people can find recognizable images within them inspired by nature and everyday life. My abstract pieces remove easily identifiable images. In my work, I strive to reflect my belief that I have about life: that one is often presented with random opportunities that can be developed into rich and beautiful experiences. In other (simple) words, life is what I make of it. Wayne Breyner, in the Austin Chronicle Arts Review writes, “The artist captures creatures of the wild – a toucan, a green sea turtle, a jellyfish, each to a single board – in the midst of environments of Morrisian complexity, all rendered in such polychrome pointillism that it could make you weep for the colorblind.” So far, I have participated in shows in Chicago, Dallas, Austin, Houston, New York, Beverly Hills, Minneapolis, Sacramento (CA), Alexandria, Nacogdoches, Galveston, Tulsa (OK) and Lubbock.
