  • Biography
With a subtle, minimalistic approach, I strive to create poetry with paint; portraying a narration of my disparate world. Living a mélange of cultures has created a passion for the eastern world with a western aesthetic.

Using natural pigments derived from minerals, plants and earth on a kaolin clay surface, my modern-day frescoes use traditional methods and materials in harmony with history and nature.

The delicate, minimalist paintings depict memories, dreams and impressions of faraway lands. They narrate a story of longing and belonging, a nostalgia for an elusive and glorious past.
