Artist Statement



A painter is a bit like a musician,  searching harmony,  developing colour,  adding texture, creating light and shadow, leaving space - just the right amount. Connections, conversations, tensions, the story telling... The beauty and the emotions.  All this in a piece of music .  All this in a painting.

Working with oil painting techniques used by masters through the last five hundred years, capturing nature to develop intimacy over slick solutions are my passion and preoccupation today. Music accompanies the painting process.

Working fast, sometimes slow,  towards simplicity and harmony,  observing people together or alone.
