I hope you like my creative work. I am a diversified visual artist working with many different mediums which includes acrylic / oil paintings, digital graphics and mixed media. It is an amazing feeling to have the ability to express myself with the different art forms, it is not only therapeutic and joyous, but where I discover my true potential as an artist.
I am also involved with a nonprofit: “Give the Needy Foundation," which I formed in 2008, which has made a tremendous and positive impact on my life.
My ability to paint is a way to support my cause further. A substantial portion of the proceeds from the sales of my paintings are donated to support Givetheneedy.org, which supports the underprivileged. I also donate a lot of my paintings to charity auctions locally in California. This is my way of helping and making a difference.
I worked as a digital artist developing/designing web and multimedia projects for the past several years. I have a background as a graphic designer with a broad experience, gained working for design studios, corporations and finally my own former business - "Universallinklink.com" which was established in 1997. My graphic design education was from California in 1990 from Platt College, where I learnt to work as a graphic designer and then trained as a digital artist. I gained my experience working with various corporate in-house art departments. Also developed websites, created print media along with multimedia projects for the past 20 years. Some were independent projects and some collaborated with a team. I helped design several design user interfaces for internet and intranet projects for various Fortune 500 and startup companies for Xelleration clients, which is now a Speridian Company.
It has been a rich learning experience in the digital world, but it came to an end in 2017, when I closed my graphic design business to pursue my passion and dream of being an artist.
Give the Needy Foundation was officially founded and registered on March 10th, 2008, as an independent nonprofit, social service functioning charity, committed to provide support to underprivileged in developing countries, as well as here in the US.
