"Extensive travels and exploration of the world have influenced the 'complexity’ of simplicity and dynamic expression of colors and shapes – their interaction with each other in my work. It is all about how one form influences the other, their play, their story-telling abilities, their color conversation. Art is personal. Art is something that words cannot describe or give justice to the meaning. Art continues the mental form of an individual. Looking at my exploration of abstract expressionism one can feel the artist's presence, part of myself shared with the audience. Perhaps, one can connect."
