"I'm a Los Angeles based artist, inspired by the urban world around me. I usually paint with acrylics, in vibrant colors borrowed from the local palette. Psychological themes permeate my work. The subject changes with each of my paintings, yet certain patterns (color combinations, techniques) find their way back in, to be reused and reiterated in an evolving way."
