Drawing + Painting

Literature holds a unique power to articulate my thoughts and emotions when I struggle to express them myself. The writers who convey such sentiments speak in my language of visual arts. Each of my painting’s processes is influenced by a piece of writing, facilitated by a simple sketch with minimal composition changes, and a direct painting application. Alongside literature, the concepts and effects of light derived from nature holds as a strong visual element in my work. I find that the beauty of reading a painting lies in its ability to evoke multiple, personalized narratives.
