    In the fall of 1999 I spent time in India, visiting the clay and mud homes of various tribal families. Inside their beautifully decorated homes, they would unfurl dozens of intricately embroidered handicraft tapestries, which weremesmerizing and dazzling due to their colors, patterns, textures, and painstaking detail. My abstract paintings are deeply inspired by the work of these tribal Indian artists. Through the frenetic juxtaposition and overlap of colors and patterns, I create a sense of energy andexuberance on the canvas that exudes an aura of exotic festivity. This highly-detailed painting emits an enticing underwater glow.
