Visual Art – Los Angeles - Hollywood, CA

Each piece or art signifies a personal emotions, experiences, and observations throughout my life. I push myself to explore the contrast between the subtlety of elaborate color transitions and the strength of bold, detailed marks. My progress is based on spontaneity, resistance, introspection, and simplicity. I allow the painting to take form through the experience and mood itself. I'm drawn to found objects, experimenting with new mediums, My style is more "go with the emotion and the end result will be worth it". Art allows me to trust and follow my gut. I started experimenting with wood burning / pyrography mixed with water based stains, ink or paint to add extra boost of life and depth. But my newest medium is using resin mixed with alcohol ink, Mecca pigments and acrylic. I love the fluid movements the tinted resin pour gives.
