My work has many themes. I usually work with a series. Some of the series I have created involve family, friends, animals, naratives scenes: taking a moment in time with one or more figures involved.
Making art is way for me to keep balance in my life. It is something I can see, feel, smell, touch, and develop. The process is stimulating, it allows me to feel connected on all levels, and provides a sense of fulfillment.
