"As an artist, I observe the interaction of objects within the spatial physical reality. As a painter, I express that interaction by emphasizing the forms, colors and textures. Through that synthesis, each of my works explore the essence of the object image as an abstraction. Light plays a very important role in my paintings, and my technique of free flowing contours allows me to give material expression to my state of mind."
