"The tapeestry of life's story is woven with the threads of life's ties ever joining and breaking." This quote from Rabindranath Tagore describes my journey as an artist. Each painting is an expression of my exploration, experimenation and learning about my life's story. As I paint I tie and retie with the past threads of my life, but I am also defining a vision from my future life. Welcome to my journey!
Artwork ranges from abstract to expressionist to landscapes using mixed media, acrylic, oil and collage.
