I hope you like my paintings. The feeling of looking at a blank canvas, and the ability to express myself with colors on my palette, is not only therapeutic and joyous, but where I discover my true potential. I now paint to explore and find magical realms where each stroke becomes reality.
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 families who are underprivileged. This is my way of giving back to the needy 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 and an Art Director, with broad experience, gained working for design studios, corporations and my own former business - "Universallinklink.com" which was established in 1997. My Graphic Design education was from California in 1990. I learnt to work as a production artist, graphic designer and trained as a digital artist. I gained my experience working with corporate in-house art departments and printing companies. 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 diversified 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 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.
