About

I have always had a passion for art and find it to be an escape. Funnily enough‚ everyday life is what gives me the inspiration to paint. My style is predominantly semi-abstract‚ abstract and in some cases verging on surreal. These styles best allow me the freedom to express my feelings & emotions in a creative manner. Although ideas for my paintings come from many different avenues‚ I believe that in the end my creativity is inspired by personal experiences!

Education
