I get my inspirations from diurnal activities, my happy memories of a challenged childhood, family bonding, positive thoughts and life experiences. Having worked for 15 years with TOEI Animation Phil., got me hooked on looking up at cloud details since my trainee days way back 2 decades ago. The show ‘One Piece’ had a lot of clouds in every episode of it. Simple yet tricky tonal values one would not underestimate to execute to perfectly fit each scene.

My favorite subjects are clouds, nature and my family. Clouds allow me to cogitate on positive stories when my view at eye level distracts me. Clouds encourage me to look up and be optimistic, too. It is my representation of fleeting moments that may not occur in our lives again

My paintings always had clouds to complement the stories I immortalize on canvas. No clouds are identical like every moment in our lives that inspire me to share my happy thoughts. Dark circles that seem to be bullet holes are exhaust vents. They are present in most of my pieces. My simple symbolism of everything negative in the society. But they do not overpower other elements in the paintings. I simply do not want to pollute the eyes and emotions of those who see my artworks.
