The power of visual language has always intrigued me. I am interested in exposing the connections and struggles between self, society, and nature, inviting the viewer to start a conversation.
“Art is more than a product of your efforts; it should be about feeling, life, attitude, and soul.” –Sergei Bongart, American Russian-born painter
Inspired everyday by Bongart’s words, my art reveals both the passionate and the whispered. By searching beyond the surface, I capture the human essence that emerges amid the abstract to express a visceral link. This potential inspires my romance with the monotype printmaking technique. I draw and paint on a smooth plate by adding and subtracting oil inks and then printing the image through an etching press. Each artwork is unique and one-of-a-kind.
