My love for classical music developed my artistic sensibilities and eventually led me to the appreciation of fine art drawing and painting. I attended the Academy of Art University in San Francisco and received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree majoring in Illustration in 2002. While continuing my life-long study in art and music education, I attended the music program at Holy Names University and received a Master of Music degree in Piano Pedagogy in 2011.
The process of studying art and music has not been an easy journey but I feel grateful to continue to fulfill my dream. I am currently teaching art to elders and teach private piano lessons, I am happy to do what I love and paint passionately; I hope to share the joy of arts with others.
My goal as an artist is to discover the inner beauty of humanity and nature using my innate senses with the help of my paintbrush. The subjects of my paintings represent my attraction and my appreciation of people and nature around me. I am compelled to capture the beauty of life’s essence through the techniques of painting vibrant light, harmonious colors, and the seductive mystery of shadows that in turn allow me to convey my emotions.
