They are designed to highlight the best features of the materials and are easy to maintain.

I am a self-taught Artist. I create on glass, wood, and canvas. My art has no guidelines.

I always challenge myself to push the limits when creating abstract art work. It is all about freedom and expression and just having fun. The technique I use is to just let go and do what feels good to the heart. The art then creates itself. What sets my medium apart is that all of my works are different.
