I am inspired by the intensity of feelings whether it is love, passion, anxiety or hope. My paintings are personal but however personal the emotions are universal. Take a simple object like the rose. Each person will see it differently. To a romantic, it is love. To a perfumer, it is fragrance. To a botanist, it is a plant. So much about life and us get “Lost in Translation.” I chose a limited palette to define our colorful world. Many details are lost, the paintings are not photographic but the heart is there. For this collection, I hope each viewer would be able to take the essence of the art and relate them in their own lives.
