“In all my works, I want and try to make smoky monochromatic looking rooms or spaces that feel romantic and give a feeling of something soft and sexy wrapping itself around you and you close your eyes and take a deep breath—no yelling only whispering.”

“I call my pastel drawing paintings because I feel they are painting in pure pigment. I use pastel pencil 95% of the time. I love to draw and I consider myself a drawer more than a painter.”
