a passion for what you do...

From a very early age I started sketching everything in sight. Later, when I could dedicate more time to art, I attended advanced painting classes to develop different styles and techniques.

My preferred method of painting is with a palette knife. I like the clarity of the undiluted buttery texture of thick paint and the sharp contrast of the different hues.

I work mostly from sketches, that I use as a preliminary guide, working out the composition and setting the tone for the painting.

For my modern paintings, I base my composition on the trusted “golden section”. Based on a mathematical division it can be a little tedious to work out, but the results are always successful.
