August 22 - November 14, 2015

I am a self-taught artist and have been painting for 8 years. My exploration has taken me deep into the spiritual aspect of Mandalas as well as the complexities of op-art and geometric art.

There is something inherently satisfying and healing about completing a piece that has hundreds or even thousands of wee bits that make up one big image. Being engaged in this sort of painting makes me acutely aware of the balance of the Universe, where every little piece plays its own important part, be it dark or light – and as I push further into this exploration, I discover how light and shadows define everything around us. This understanding is now becoming more and more apparent in my paintings.
