As far back as I can remember, I have always wanted to create and express art, be it in the form of photography, music, dance, writing, or painting. I learned and started cooking at an early age from my mother and food became my first art medium. I enjoyed layering flavors and textures, and mixing colors of the different unusual and familiar Ingredients and then intuitively create plain fare to exotic cuisine for family and friends. Today, it is the same with my painting as with my other medium of artwork. But now I am layering contrasting and complementary colors, shapes, forms, and textures on canvas, paper, wood and metals using tools from a simple artist brush to computer technology. The colors and abstract images in my artwork are expressions of emotional memories of the joys and disappointments, lessons and losses, in love and life. They are my creative expressions of the exceptional and ordinary, unscripted experiences in my journey through life. My work consists of images I abstracted not only from the sounds, rhythms, movements and patterns of nature and state humankind; it is also influenced by the diverse elements, the unpredictable beauty of Earth and the Universe as we all evolved through space and time. I am a proud graduate of Michigan State University College of Business and reside in East Lansing, Michigan.
