I love to create contemporary art in digital media. Fractals, geometric forms, abstract elements & the use of a bold colour palette are prominently featured in my work. Creating in digital media since 2003, I am currently exploring the realm of alternative digital printmaking.

By reflecting on the past, connecting with the present and envisioning the future, I am able to fulfill an ongoing creative need and artistic desire. Most of my self-expressions have traveled a long path before being brought to life visually. Each one represents a significant marker in time & space and is part of this thrilling creative journey I am following. I have taken many detours along the way, but always remaining passionately curious, and forever seeking inspiration from internal as well as external stimuli.

Just as an artist’s statement is considered a “living document”, (continually subject to change) . . . so too is my art. It temporarily lives in the form of pixels and binary code embedded in my computer, and is subject to boundless artistic nuances, before finally deciding to manifest the original work of art outside of its matrix. The only thing constant is change.

I embrace digital technology and love the free-spirited feeling derived when creating abstractly. I look forward to continually growing as an artist & leaving my marks along the way.

 

“As an artist, I am able to float in gentle waters of my mind, as well as express the turbulence of the storms of life.
Each of my senses connects to a lifelong journey of memories and relationships.
These are the markers which I reflect and draw upon. ”
