As an abstract artist, I find inspiration everywhere. I graduated with honours from the University of California, Los Angeles, with a four year degree in Studio Art. My art draws upon the multiple places across North America where I've lived as well as my love of travel. Surfaces of my multi media paintings are scratched, splattered, poured and painted to evolve to their present state. I respond to the intrinsic growth of the painting as it evolves, leaving glimpses of the layers that have formed the images. Influenced by Asian art, water images, I continue to explore.
