"Color is the silent and dynamic visual language through which I communicate with my viewer. I choose my Color based on resonance not based on reasoning. Color appeals to me in in the highest possible way. Color is the flow of my energy and emotion. Color is therapy to me...it crawls deeply into the corners of my soul and slowly it heals and elevates my mood. Color has a healing magic; it touches my heart and impacts my nerves.
As a true artist I feel more alive when I am painting than the rest of the time. My paintings are a manifestation of my life force and lyrical reflections of my subconscious mind. I travel through the wonderful world of Colors and try to capture the secret and romantic language of Colors with rhythm, reverberation, intensity and balance to create magic and emotional responses. Every drop of Color is a word written on the canvas. "
