" My first step of letting go is
what  decides what comes next."

I believe that abstraction is the ultimate door to someone's very personal visual language. Hidden symbols, memories, and attitudes are woven beneath the art. It could be about innocence, heritage, nostalgia, environment, a sense of beauty, or even darkness. Every deliberate movement or mark, tension, pressure, or velocity that the artist applies to the canvas with the love of paint, a brush, or any weapon of choice and a color combination is simplified, yet a more concealed visual language is coded, composed, and expressed into a work of art.

I'm interested in discovering and capturing the essence and nuances of the natural world. In my process, I let the freedom of movement to take shape—with soft curves, edges and rhythmic brushstrokes. The first flow of movement occurs intuitively, followed by the layering of different techniques and detail work to achieve textural contrast, dimension, and depth. Imagining a burst of petals that blooms and lights up at night, or seeing something as simple as the calming gradient of the colorful sky at sunset, or the surface of water that glimmers makes me wonder about the mystery of the deepest oceans, have all piqued my creative process and subliminal stimuli.

At the core, I am more interested in the sensorial and experiential aspects of feelings and processes. It is a collaborative event of constructing my vision and letting go of inhibition in the pursuit of harmony. Following curiosity. embracing the unknown, and drawing out what's hidden inside into something physical really gratifies me.

Working with acrylics, immediacy is an important factor in the process and it helps to retain a spontaneous quality that I love. I also enjoy dynamic line work, gradation, and a play of light and dark to give each of my works a quiet intensity.
