Live Joyfully



A painter who is inspired by the East who lives in the West.

I begin a painting with an idea in mind, but the idea changes shape and color by the time it is finished because color simply has a mind of its own and flows so freely. When I feel a painting is a well rounded composition of space, color, and idea, I experience a great sense of accomplishment and peace. This sense of peace and tranquility is what I hope my paintings convey to the viewer; a moment of true escapism.
