My art work is inspired by: the splendor of nature and creation, the personality and character on people’s faces and situations, landscapes that show interesting subjects like parks.
I work in acrylic, ink resist, mixed media, pen and ink, watercolor.
I decide what to paint by considering the elements of design, composition, color, and technique. Not all subjects are good for ink resist.
The viewer should enjoy the statement made by the artist.
