As I reflect upon my life, I’m awakened by feelings of love and gratefulness. Unforgettable experiences. Joyful moments. Beautiful memories. Painful recollections. The many challenges of life as an immigrant. The many people who I have known in my life, and this journey that would not have been the same without them. I have always desired to capture their influence in my paintings, and passionately express them all as they have deeply colored my “Panorama of Life”. This theme encompasses my longing to illustrate the colors of happiness, sorrow, beauty and ugliness that together paint my life.
