In my art, I strive to capture not just the external appearance of my subjects, but also their inner spirit and the stories they embody. My figurative paintings are a process of character study and emotional exploration, with each stroke adding another layer to the narrative and emotional depth of the piece. My ultimate goal is to create artwork that not only pleases the eye, but also engages the mind and touches the viewer's emotions.

I have a special connection with watercolor as a medium, as it allows me to bridge Eastern and Western artistic traditions. I enjoy the contradictions inherent in the medium, such as the balance between complexity and simplicity, control and letting go, and the permanent and the temporary. As I paint, I start with something that moves me and then allow the piece to find its own path through a process of unique discovery, non-linear evolution, and spontaneous happenings.
