I began my artistic journey roughly 35 years ago, turning to art as a way to unwind and relieve stress. I started with watercolors and later transitioned to acrylics. However, it wasn't until 2013, when I left my corporate job, that I truly embraced art as a career.
Over the years, I honed my artistic skills, dedicating at least six hours each day to my craft in my makeshift studio in Sammamish, Washington. In the beginning, my work leaned towards representational art with a somewhat whimsical and precise style. But then, I had a realization that abstract art, which captures the essence of emotions rather than obvious representations, held deeper meaning for me.
It took me a while to find my unique artistic voice, and that breakthrough occurred in 2018-2019 when I discovered the world of oil and cold wax medium. This medium, which eschews brushes in favor of larger tools, pushed me to embrace boldness and looseness.
Admittedly, I didn't immediately take to this medium, but I persisted and soon uncovered a realm of creative possibilities. It allowed me to convey the innermost stories of my thoughts and musings.
Every abstract piece I create begins with a profound reflection on life's chaos, marked by wild and unbridled strokes and efforts. These elements gradually transform into a carefully constructed narrative of inner peace and hope.
The end result emerges from layers of paint and dedicated effort, revealing a burst of vibrant colors and tranquility, balanced with just the right tensions to make each work of art engaging and thought-provoking.
