My mind is my sketchbook and my art is what I see, how I feel, and wherever I go. The foundation of my art is drawing. After exploring countless mediums, nothing excites me more than working with tusche washes -a media used for printmaking. I eliminate the printmaking process by leaving the tusche washes as my finished work. This medium helps me to create the images I see in my mind with the emotional impact I feel when I draw.
I also build my own canvases by stretching repurposed coffee bags over wooden frames. I love drawing on the knobbly surfaces with oil pastels – an arduously time-consuming adventure. I enjoy working with these materials because it gives my art unique textures, colors and expression of my visions.
