My art spans many disciplines and areas. Being a self taught, learning and experimenting has become an ingrained part of my practice and as such there is a diverse range of subject matter and on some occasions style.  Majority of my works are oil paintings, created in series, in a representational style,. Some of note are “Buddhas on Handmade Paper”, “Bicycles in Snow” “#Savetheelephants”. The common thread in my diverse art is the feeling of serenity and tranquility, with the ultimate objective in every painting to capture the harmonious existence of different elements in nature, that evidences life is strong, calm and beautiful.
