    I've been wanting to post this

    for a while. This is something I made when I was little. I believe I was around 8, 9, or 10 years old. I created this heart piece using just paint stamps that were round and in the shapes of circles.

    A Glimpse Into My Abstract Mind

    When I paint I go somewhere else. This place is a place of balance, an escape from chaos. In many of my paintings there are things that symbolize a balance of elements or sometimes there are things that symbolize grounding, because these are the things that I am seeking when I...

    I use to paint a lot

    but now I barely have time. I love painting abstract paintings I have imagined in my mind. The more color the better!! I have my absolute favorite displayed on my bedroom wall right now. I really wish I had more time to paint more often.:(

    Limited Palette - Letting Two Colours Speak.

    This was an early painting, in limited palette. That meant everything i wanted to say had to be described with three tubes of paint - prussian blue, raw umber and white.  I was just amazed at how many colours you are able to approximate just playing the mix between those two...

    Painting Heals

    Painting Is My Form of expression

    I just love the feel of sitting down at my easel and painting whether it is my usual abstract or just blending colors on my canvas. It is definitely a way for me to express how I am feeling or to get out some pent up feelings or just to have fun. I am not an artist by no means...

    Painting is really relaxing to me.

    Painting allows me to escape my brain

    but at the same time explore parts of it I didn't even know existed. I paint with some of my favorite music blasting and it is so therapeutic. I get carried away with the colors and the motion of what I am creating as well as the sounds that I am surrounded by. I often forget I...

    I Get Lost In The Moment.

    I love to paint so much. When I'm painting, I really get lost in the moment. I find the inspiration and I start sketching slowly, then I start painting little by little. I forget everything. I'm not aware of time anymore.
