My love for modern, contemporary and abstract artwork continues to evolve and I primarily work with acrylic paint on canvas, fine paper and board. I love bold colours and the power it brings to my art. My artwork is personal and expressive of someone born in one country, raised in another, my art reflects my persistence in the face of personal struggles, forging an identity and finding my place in the world. Sometimes that world is upside down and by painting through my emotional state I use my art to figure out how to make sense of it all.
