Art takes many forms®...It inspires, decorates, comforts and communicates... but most importantly, art indulges our senses and enriches our soul.
From a rewarding career in fine art encompassing international awards and works in public collections, to the corporate world of retail advertising, and recently, academia, my passion for creative and intellectual inquiry has been channeled on many levels. I hold a Master of Art degree (M.A.) in art history, and a Bachelor of Fine Arts (B.F.A.) degree in painting and drawing.
In 2014, I published a book on architecture "Seduced by Form: Aesthetics of Spectacle in Contemporary Art Museum Architecture" available online worldwide in digital and printed formats.
In fine art, my language of visualization draws on the legacy of Surrealism, where fantasy and pastiche play an integral part. Whether in paintings, drawings or lithographs, the techniques applied privilege the narrative of the line - a style of calculated precision that aims at conveying a story.
Digital media has enabled me to explore a deeper sense of mystery within natural world's wealth of diversity. In my photographs, the unexpected, the playful and the hidden are revealed through the aesthetically re-purposed vintage objects, architectural elements, plants and animals.
My often small in size works acquire a unique relationship with their viewers, revealing themselves more intimately at closer inspection.
