About the Artist

My art is a reflection of perception, meaning and essence viewed as a way to express feelings and emotions through bright colors and contrasts.My art represents the many roles of life, and themes that focus on identity and cultural heritage.Assessing the beauty found in each context and the values of life, my inspiration comes from seeing diversity up close.
