His artistic process relies on his ability to let go of conscious constraints to allow subconscious mind to freely guid his hand into creating cryptic sketches and doodles, filled with emotions, thoughts, and questions. These sketches then go through a production method of study, selection, and refinement to then be painted on canvas. This process serves as a therapeutic introspective conversational expression of the divine passing through him in the form of art and art making. The painting’s purpose are constructed at a later process through examining the work closely and dissecting the elements.
