Project Description

Nature has become my muse where colors and texture play a major part in my  works.

Everyday, nature’s phenomena reflects back to us its beauty in magical and intense images.

This new body of work is a celebration and an expression of my wonder of nature’s gifts.

I love what Rembrandt said, “Choose only one master – Nature.”
