Is defined as a
mixture, or a medley - and that is what my painting are. I enjoy
painting many subjects in many styles. I love to translate the feelings
I have for my subjects in the genre and medium which best reflects my
vision at that particular time. The style and medium I choose helps me
to describe the emotion of my experience - whether it is abstract,
stylized or traditional. I love everything about painting and it is my
sincere hope that my works will give you the same pleasure that I derive
from creating them.”
