Welcome to my Atelier, where each of my latest series invites you into a realm of bold expression, designed to spark joy and captivate the imagination. Here, the vibrancy of bold colors takes center stage, expertly interplaying with light and depth to transform each piece into a captivating and dynamic visual journey.

In my 'Chromatic Harmony' series, I embark on an enthralling journey through the spectrum of color, using hues to stir emotions in a way similar to how a musician uses notes in a melody. Each of my pieces showcases a unique blend of colors, created through a combination of acrylics, inks, watercolors, and pastels, which seems to gently pulsate, exuding positive energy and infusing any home with radiant vibrancy.

My most recent releases are created with elements like cut-glass glitter and glossy iridescent acrylic, which play with light reflection to create a unique interaction between the artwork, its viewer, and the surrounding environment. Ambient light brings each piece to life, revealing a dynamic interplay of colors that captivates and engages. This approach transforms traditional 2-dimensional painting into an immersive 3D experience, emotionally resonant and inviting you to feel as if you're an integral part of the artwork itself.

The 'Bloom' series focuses on my favorite artist: nature. There is so much beauty in the natural world and its astounding use of color, pattern, and symmetry. I’m driven to capture this tremendous beauty: from the surprise of bare winter branches transforming into blooming trees to the patterns in molecules invisible to the naked eye, to the innate order of the Fibonacci sequence seen in delphiniums, pineapples, and nautilus shells.

Despite its purity, nature is never untouched. The man-made world inevitably intermingles, and no matter how hard we try, the materialist, consumerist world rears its head. Thus, I incorporate elements of my entropic series here, drawing inspiration and materials from various sources such as personal illustrations and photography, vintage books, and magazines. Everything is deconstructed and reconstructed as I assemble the elements onto giant sheets of paper. These are then further cut into individual flowers, fauna, and butterflies, and combined into a 3D collage on acrylic sheets. The result invites the viewer to discover the fine detail and intricate patterns of the individual flowers, reminding us of the wonder and magic of the natural world surrounding us.

Are these abstract aerial views of geological landscapes, or micro-impressions of crystals and the human body? My 'Symphonic Atlas' series, inspired by my favorite muse, nature. There is so much beauty to be inspired by all around us. The swirls of vibrant agate rock, wavy patterns in natural land formations, a cross-section of a rainbow-hued crystal, and the candy-colored stripes lining a glacier are among my inspirations. As well as beauty, there is mystery in nature. As such, I love to keep the true meaning of each piece ambiguous: are these works reflecting contained, finite moments or small snapshots of something larger and continuous?

No matter how viewers interpret them, I hope the series challenges perceptions and invites questioning. These works are created on acrylic, oftentimes iridescent acrylic, and layered with swirls of mixed media and coated in cut glass glitter and crystals‚ÄĒa combination that creates an interactive effect, drawing the viewer in and changing as one moves around the piece with its shifting luminosity.
