I began my art career as a classical painter with oil, watercolor, pastel and charcoal, but I felt compelled to continue learning using a variety of media and techniques: acrylic, sumi-e, natural pigments and others. As well, I evolved from working on traditional sizes to murals and billboards and from 2-D to 3-D. I recognize I have become and experimentalist capturing symbolic art forms. Currently, I am working with recycled materials organic and inorganic, being challenged by contemporary installations. As an artist, most importantly for me is working with the community, and particularly, working with young future artists has become my crusade.
