My artwork paints a picture of how I see life, culture, and my world. I explain themes/ subjects such as family, love, society, along with political and religious issues. The work usually consists of paintings on canvases and wood. The work in execute beautifully with oil paint and various mediums. Although each piece is different and unique, the style and method remains consistent. I want the viewer to take a peek into my window and see what I see. Art is meant to inspire and i truly hope my work touch you as well
