My current body of works are abstract, organic, transparent, totally spontaneous, decorative, sometimes colorful, sometimes bold, thick and thin, with deliberate connectivity among the shapes. I enjoy seeing new imagery each time they are viewed and the feelings and emotions they may impart. Organic forms are used as metaphors to describe the human life cycle and the ties that bind us together. They are both minimal and complex. Some would say they are ideological. Hopefully, my work will continue to grow, change, inspire and give pleasure. It is the most honest thing I do.
