That moment when you’ve completely lost yourself to your painting, it’s like nothing Ive ever felt before. I have been painting for about twelve years now. Self taught artist born in Queens, NY. I have showcased my work at Hotel Chelsea in Manhattan, and several galleries in San Francisco, CA. Painting helps me makes sense of this world and of myself. My inspiration comes from emotions, I paint to makes sense of those feelings that simply can not be put into words.
