Unleashing my emotions on the canvas, I need to feel and manipulate the medium with which I project my ideas. I apply layers of paint with my hands and fingers, wiping and scratching simultaneously to produce textures.

 

My paintings are an emotional response to the environment I live in, and the calamities both natural and manmade that lead to irreparable damage. It is subtle and understated with glimpses of people as mere shadows of what they could be.
