art portfolio

I enjoy creating colorful, bright paintings which reflect how I see the world, full of optimism with a desire to take advantage of each moment. Each scene I capture in my art represents a snapshot of life. 

Many of my artworks highlight the varying manners people live across different cultures and the memories I have attached to these subjects. The ordinary and mundane objects I paint are my intimate and domestic experiences often sheltered from the public sphere that reveal the personality and experiences of my families and household. Through these settings and possessions, the simple, often-overlooked objects I create reveal the traditions and values of a particular culture.

My art also reflects my relationships with my family members. They support me in pursuing my ambitious academic and creative endeavors.​ My family members influence who I am today and dare me to venture further in my artistic pursuits. Though many of the works in my portfolio do not depict any human figures, their deeper meanings revolve around the various environments and objects that have strongly impacted on my growth. They are symbols and pieces of my experiences with my family and the places that have had profound impact on me. These treasured memories and people are intimate parts of my life. With a pencil or paintbrush in my left hand, I am a medium to express these qualities and my creative imagery.

Here is a gallery of hand painted shoes and clothing articles that I have painted. I enjoy these projects to express myself creatively through fashion.
