My paintings employ a reactive method in search for elusive notion that has perplexed me for some time. The images, symbols, and compositions that stem from personal, social, political realities are ofter a foil to assist in the realization of feelings generated by that evasive notion.\\\" Movement, colors, shapes, pattern, line, and texture - these are some of the elements of art that I find exciting. I paint for sheer joy- the passion of it. Images taken from every day life are translated into visual descriptions on the canvas with challenges of working out relationship between the elements into successful composition. Creating, communicating, experimenting and placing oneself into the work, by putting paint to the surface with emotion, is the connection for me.\"
