“I like to paint what I sense or feel such as the sound of a stream, the sparkles of light in the green world of nature or the city constructions with hard edges, electric sidewalks and some blazing red sounds.”
I like to paint what I sense or feel such as the sound of a stream, the sparkles of light in the green world of nature or the city constructions with hard edges, electric sidewalks and some blazing red sounds. Using a paddle and my fingers, I apply acrylic or oil paints onto the canvas. My intention is that viewers may experience a sense of recognition or create their own stories from my art works.
