My work explores deep emotions, I am multifaceted in my technique and most of the time each painting explores a different emotion as a subject matter. I do believe my work is like an echo of my emotions. My interest is vast and I am extremely influenced by nature and all the cultures I have explored through traveling the world. As a designer, my work at times has strong minimalistic elements. I am greatly influenced by "Art Deco and Contemporary architecture" as well as design, media, asymmetrical balance, reflection, and Music.
Music is one of the greatest influence reflected within my work! Most of the time when I am painting I transit to sounds such as Franz Liszt, Adele, Bon Jovi and Enigma. My early works back in college voiced social commentary. I have always been deeply touched and moved by the etchings of Francisco de Goya, especially the Los caprichos. I do believe "Art is the greatest statement of the imagination, and that a thing of beauty is a joy forever. In my work, I try to express depth through color and diagonal geometry! As a child, I was always fascinated by the works of artist such as Pablo Picasso, Edvard Munchs, and Marc Chagall.
I agree with Berthe Morisot when he said, “It is important to express oneself...provided the feelings are real and are taken from your own experience.”
“Life is like a Canvas, I live my life to paint”!
