Ever since I was a child, I have turned to drawing and painting as a way to express myself and make sense of the world around me. Below are some examples of the various visual arts work I've done over the past 20+ years. To see more, you can visit an older blog where most of my work has been chronicled. It's fascinating to see how some of the themes and characters have transitioned into the ceramic art sgraffito designs that currently captivate my focus.
