The artist's responsibility is to illuminate and inspire, by sharing experiences through the universal language of visual art.
"Coming from a background in science and engineering, I think of each painting as an apparatus, with the intended goal of creating a sensory experience for the viewer. Relying on tried-and-true theories of aesthetic and design, each painting is crafted to guide the eye through a visual roller coaster of stimulation."
