Visual Artist: Painting
My work as an artist draws heavily from my experiences getting to know and teach others. Understanding people of all ages and from all walks of life is a crucial part of my creative, academic, and problem-solving processes.
Inspired by Buddhist mandalas and driven by a passion for understanding, my oil paintings seek to find the beauty, truth, and meaning in the chaotic patterns of everyday life.
