I am an artist with a particular style. It is vibrant, colorful and uses a number of forms simultaneously to define a particular scene or daily event. My themes are generally simple and joyful, because I consider art to be a way to extract the best from our lived moments, making us laugh and enjoy the piece and the world with optimism. I have painted using various different techniques, though my favorite is acrylic on canvas.
