Ever since I was a child I have loved to draw and paint. It is the constant search for a new insight into my surroundings which leads me to explore different subject matter. Each painting has something special about it which excites me. My love of nature and wildlife has inspired paintings of birds and animals.
My travels in Italy and study of art history have given me an appreciation of Italian art and architecture. In painting I try to capture the feeling of the subject and the impression it makes on me. As a painting evolves, it becomes an individual entity which is composed of shape, color and light. The act of painting and completing a painting is immensely satisfying.
