Design and creation has always been the essence of my work and personal identity. As an electronic engineer, designing electronic gadgets with math and code felt fabulous, but deep inside me there was always the suppressed voice of an imprisoned
bird, the Artist.
After picking up the paint brush as rebellion after a frustrating day of technical faults in my work, I have never put it down. The freedom that Art has given me is priceless,
and I will never trade that for anything in the world.
My painting style ranges from abstract nature depictions to digital landscaping, and that's if art can be given a name or category. I work with both Oils and Acrylics, and never restrict my use of colour.
Most of my paintings feature some form of trees - for me, a soulful connection with the universe, anchored throughout all seasons and toil. Landscaping provides me with a powerful platform with which I aspire to change all melancholy around me.The choice of the mostly vibrant colour combinations in my paintings is inspired by my very contrasting journey of self-discovery, and the passionate desire to connect with other people through my art. What different colours can do together is just as powerful as what we, as different people can achieve by coming together in quests of goodness and hope.
How we use the prerogative and the chance that life gives us, is our choice.
