Art is my passion. I express myself through both abstract and figurative works. In my abstract work I feel ideas flow through colour o¬n paper. Different colours used indicate different pictures of life. I use various colours to explain all possible phases of life.

Figurative paintings help me give shape to ideas and be inventive and expressive while religious paintings are the source of positive energies in my life.

Painting is my meditation; my path to self discovery, I find silence in the noise of colour and form, tranquility to me is creating a picture.
