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

I like to capture the essence and subtle elements of the natural world. I love animals and nature and the paintings are an extension of myself. In my process, I let the freedom of movement takes shape-- with soft curves, edges, and rhythmic brushstrokes. The initial flow of movement comes instinctually, followed by the delicate stage of contemplation, detailed work, and layering different techniques to achieve textural contrast, dimension, depth.

Often, imagining a burst of petals that blooms and lit up in the nighttime, or seeing something as simple as the calming gradient of the colorful sky at sundown, or the surface of water that glimmers which makes me wonder about the mystery of the deepest oceans -- 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.

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, atmospheric use of translucent effects, and a play of light and dark to give each of my works a quiet intensity.
