'Traces" accurately describes my abstract works inspired by the Middle East and influenced by Western Africa and Central Asia. I wanted to show that beauty can be found in all cultures.
My works are done in mixed media, and I add several layers while carving out shapes and calligraphic forms. My goal is to further explore other cultures while retaining influences of past experiences.
