I would describe my paintings as eclectic because I am always learning and experimenting with shapes and colors depending on the mood (sometimes contradictory) or the theme I might be working on. The images are a blend of the natural world and imaginary creatures.
Words cannot explain my work. People will see what they wish to see and create their own stories. The titles of my works my guide but still, a lot remains unsaid. Nature has always been my inspiration, but I wanted to recreate it with hybrids so that the viewer might see it anew.
