I inherited my love for art from my grandfather and used to draw with my father when I was a child. My education in textile design along with twenty years of experience as a tie designer have impacted my work visibly, in the textures, compositions, and ambiences. I use gouache, pastels, watercolors, and other materials. I then combine them with printed images of scanned pastel and acrylic gouache drawings, which I manipulate digitally. My pieces exude happiness and warmth. I believe that art can change lives and bring joy to those who experience it.
