My art aims to be an exploration and not a product. I investigate various historical methods particularly egg tempera and classical oil painting, constantly evolving my process. It may be that I am simply restless. I studied printmaking in school, supervised a fine arts bronze foundry and worked in display using a myriad of materials but painting is my great passion.

If only heaven will give me just another ten years... Just another five more years, then I could become a real painter.

If I paint well into my old age I may allow myself to still be a beginner.
