Artist Statement

"Painting is a study of our existence, spirit, and environment, derived from experiences in life. I choose objects that evoke childhood memories, create situations of atmospheric mystery, and bring visual interest through interaction. I’m intrigued by subtle shifts in value and color; yet seek a personal interpretation of the objects rather than a replication. Personality is revealed through the process of painting. Abstract remnants from my process remain visible in the final product. The hand must obey the spirit. "

The louvre

I was invited to be a part of the "Salle De Notre" Salon show at The Louvre.  The space was beautiful, I had chills, and was extremely honored to be part of such a historic and imortant moment.  I have learned about the Salon show when attending art school and found that many famous artists were first discovered here.  I'm sure it was even more amazing back then, it seems to me that it would be so. 
We were living in India, so the short flight to Paris seemed like a no brainer, allthough getting the painting there was a whole other story.  A bit of a nightmare that I didn't have to deal with, I'm just grateful my parents were such great sports.
