'My paintings are the voice describing feelings and emotions portrayed in figurative nude and semi-nude artworks. Each work is connected to my life as an artist and my close relations.
Most of the artworks feature women who are a guiding light of the imbalance that tends to overlook the power and stability they bring into society. My work tends to lean heavily on display of affection, love and body rest/relaxation (key factors in relationships and self-awareness) between and to all the genders. This is the main concept I want to expreme through contrasting and fading colors. I capture in the non-verbal messages displayed through emotions, beauty, richness and most importantly the state of mind of the community around me.
I employ the use of acylics, charcoal, watercolor and graphite to depict all the mentioned topics.'
