My work is mainly figurative and I use people of my daily life as my models. I work a variety of materials on my paintings and drawings. Working in multi-media allows me to create various visual effects through the manipulation of the material. With my paintings and drawings, I incorporate the idea of self-identity and the expression of one’s internal emotions. The use of the figures expresses personal feelings and at the same times a recognition of the artist’s identity.
