In the tradition of great painting, my work is an ongoing quest to define the
sublime, the ineffable, and a heartfelt yearning for harmony and spiritual

My work, which concerns core moral and humanistic values, is informed by
diverse texts, prophetic writings, modern theology and history and contemporary
socio-political references.

Integrity, ethical dilemma, parables on mortality and the need for spiritual
connection link the lessons of my heritage to present-day concerns.

Through my allegorical and poetic visual language, expressed through thematic
vibrant color, expressive line, and dedication to creating aesthetically whole
works, I explore the theme of the subject. Personal intuition and free-association
form the foundation of my creative expression.
