To view resume:
I consider myself an experimental artist. I create everything from mixed media wood panels to delicate watercolor paintings on rice paper. Nothing excites me more than experimenting with art materials to create new forms of expression. Throughout my artistic career, I have experimented with many styles and mediums. I am now focusing on one style and one medium in order to put more conceptual emphasis on representing my inner emotional works.
