Artist Statement
Every piece of art has a story. The creation of an artwork is akin to a journey and the final product, the essence of the journey’s experience.
My artwork revolves around people as I seek inspiration from them. Through art, I attempt to evoke senses and let others see the story at a glance. In paintings, I try to recreate an ambience through delicate lighting, which is often reflective of my current state of mind. I really enjoy working with oil paints as well as other dry mediums such as charcoal and graphite.

Since I am relatively new to the art industry, I try to keep an open mind with a strong interest in picking up skills of the trade. Also, I am sensitive to the therapeutic healing effects of visual art and the emotional impact that art can make as I seek solace in art making during my less-than-perfect childhood. Currently, I am keen to explore the comforting effects of art in oil painting and hope that I am able to share my experiences in life that may warm the souls of many.
