“I am trying to put into these desolate figures the savagery that I see in them and which is in me too… Dammit, I want to consult nature as well but I don’t want to leave out what I see there and what comes into my mind.” – Paul Gauguin
Each work of art is a new discovery of my world. I learned of Paul Gauguin in my early academic years and immediately felt connected to his style and methodology. His work has been a huge influence on me. I feel encouraged to experiment with color, style, and different approaches to painting techniques. I am reminded that play is ultimately what gets the best outcome.
