Welcome, and thank you for checking out my art!

I have always been somehow involved in the arts since I was a teenager, whether it be creative writing or visual arts. With painting, my early works were hyperrealistic portraits and landscapes, and I was very interested in a photographic style of painting. But about 7 years ago, while living in Astoria, Queens, I started to explore a more abstract style – playing around with contrasts in textures and colors. That is where I still am in my art, today. Now, as an art therapist who guides clients through self-exploration through art, a lot of my personal artwork tends to be intuitive as well- trusting the process and enjoying it far more than the finished product. Exploring, expressing, and learning about myself. Getting it all out on the canvas or paper.
