I have been painting ever since I can remember. Art has always been my most natural form of expression. I find inspiration in my surroundings and in nature. I have innate desire to capture the essence of the world around me. Whether it be a simple object or a grand scene, there is always something beautiful to see. I am an artist because art is how I process the world and communicate my vision.
