When I paint, I relate my work to my life experience. I use art as an outlet to express myself, as a place where I can empty my feelings and share the vision I have of the world around me. I am particularly interested in the relationship between people and the environment. I think that it is imperative for the world to pay their respect to Mother Earth and to each other.
