I feel my art is like an open diary. It records my life, and the life around me.
My paintings are my preferred way to explain myself to the world. They speak of the things I don't know how to put into words.
Painting is a process and it connects me, my sitters and the viewers.  It is a bridge between past and present.
I want to paint people, because people intrigue me, especially during the process of communication in silence.

I hope viewers will feel what I felt in the moments of painting. See what inspired me!
