From a young age I wanted to be an artist and through my experiences growing up in Europe and Asia, and as a love of art history since high school, I find inspiration across many cultures.
My favorite art forms are those of ancient civilizations – Japan, China, and Egypt. Other influences include Gustav Klimt, the Art Deco movement, and Mexican folk art.
I believe that art is inherently healing, and as a Reiki practitioner, I tune into the energies of natural and spirit world in my work as a way to share the energies I feel in a visual way.
Earth, air, fire, water, and metal are the foundations of our environment. In my art I symbolize each element and strive to create harmonious compositions that balance each element found in nature to bring a sense of calm and grounding in the viewer. I use metallic paints (gold, bronze, copper, and occasionally silver) to depict how precious the natural world is and how much we take its valuable resources for granted.
