The pictorial frame of the canvas, which serves as a template for the configuration of the painted subject. As of late, the emergence between abstraction and figuration o ers a transformative nature in the work. The schism that exists between the two, acts as a pendulum that swings back and forth; a guiding force within the work.

How does the region influence your art?

As a painter, it’s my calling to sift reality and pour its aspects onto the canvas through the brush. In doing so; a straightforward vision and sincere voice emerge. Painting offers the artist an opportunity to view and observe life through a unique lens.

Imagination is a powerful lens to polish. An integral aspect of the painting process. Imagination allows access into the subconscious, which coincidentally defines us.
