My art explores and expresses myself, in relation to society, nature and the universe at large. Using visual and written narratives that express my state of mind regarding life, religion, spirituality, science, nature, origins, identity, love, and pain. Diverse in its scope, but reflecting upon common themes. variety is favored over visual and thematic artworld consistency. 
My current body of work takes on the form of brightly colored acrylic paintings, drawings and archival pigment prints on canvas, nylon and paper. Figurative, and abstract, juxtaposed with symbolic imagery in surreal settings, often resembling surrealistic landscapes. Encompassing incorporated text and collage, or displayed with accompanying written narratives.
At times controversial and tragically graphic, from fairytale crucifixions, to war torn and heartbreaking Palestinian children, and other times light hearted and magically playful, each artwork represents my current state of mind. They are snapshots of my mind.

"My art is my mind, my heart, my pain, my memories, it's what I smell, see, hear, think and cry about."
