“Throughout my painting life, all of my works, mostly rendered on canvas
and paper are very much representative of my life, the time of year and
most of all the place where I live.  I have always drawn my inspiration
from nature.  The artist’s job, I believe is to awaken the viewer’s eye
to investigate a visual idea and see something totally new in an
ordinary subject.”
