Influenced by music and dance
Creates atmospheric and landscape abstracts of all styles
The essential concept of abstract painting is that the content comes from inside the artist rather than the outside, material world.

Its influences range from calligraphy and other Eastern concepts to landscapes to music to stained glass to symbolism to spirituality.
