Cultural expectations and struggle take a center stage in her works. Her subjects are real, and whether happy or sad, she paints it in her own personal style. The unique part about her is that she ends her artwork with an inspirational note as she believes that it's not what the situations are but how they are dealt with. She mainly works on canvas with oil and acrylic paints. Palette knife and barbecue skewer are her favorite tools.

Some of her paintings are inspired by Picasso because of her liking for his cubism style that gives depth to the work.

MISSION : I transform your space into stylish and elegant with my artwork. My artwork influence and empower you with my powerful messages that make you think. I am seen as a strong woman by others. When someone buys my artwork, they buy a little part of my character and strength that they can feel when they put it on the wall. Art should move your body and soul into a positive light . . . and not just hang on the wall. My mission is to assist clients in developing collections that have deep personal meaning. I offer my consultancy to help people figure out the right piece of art for the right setting or space. Many times, it is not easy for people to visualize how a certain painting would look like on a wall. The décor style is an extension of oneself and communicates so much about one's personality.

INSPIRATION: This is a beautiful world. I may find inspiration anywhere I look. My art is an expression of the psychological and emotional interpretation of events. My psychologist mind desires to study people that inspires me to paint human forms. It evokes different emotions, but I do not hold back on my creativity. I express my own thoughts on any issue or any subject, without expectations or cultural restraints.

GOAL: My goal is to make my art conversational and serene. I feel, even if a drop of inspiration or encouragement becomes a reservoir of confidence and calmness in someone's life, it would be worth it. And that is how “Serene Compositions”- my brand name came into existence. It gives me incredible joy to see my clients, art collectors, fans inspired and happy because I am driven by the enormous value that I add to people's lives through my art, the value that they can't get from anywhere else.

My art is my voice. It's a true reflection of who I am.

I am in a constant state of gratefulness to God who has taken me to where I am and to where I am headed.
