Painting is simply a joy and a passion. For me it frees my soul from past and present emotions - so I am simply the expressionist painter. I do not set out to paint a particular subject with my art. I start with a blank canvas‚ put on my headphones‚ pour a glass of wine and it comes in a unconscious way. I gain inspiration from relating to other people and different experiences in my life.

From the editorial director
"There is something deeply intense and critical in personal sensibilities and modalities of your art works and amidst a plethora of expressionist painting‚ you manage to say something very different."
statement of samantha darling
Samantha Darling a curator/publicist based in NYC
"I love the moving‚ sublime qualities in your abstract paintings. Each of your works is incredibly elemental. Using sensuous‚ romantic colors they convey a rich passion that is compelling. Collectively‚ your contemporary works are vivid‚ expressionist paintings that communicate profound feelings to the viewer. "
