These paintings are examples of my first explorations as an oil painter. Transitioning from paper to canvas resulted in a shift in my work, the art became more figurative. Starting with my self portraits, I depicted the duality of my personality. Then I portrayed relationships, familial and romantic with female and male figures. And finally I added an animal element to show the interconnectedness of our environment. Most of these paintings are part of a series so I can have several images illustrate my story. I have always been fascinated with triptychs and so my art tends to go that way, for example the Lovers series and the Murder and a Muster series are both triptychs.
