“My artistic influences have certainly changed over the years, I have had a wonderful journey working to define for myself what embodies a truly fine work of art, recognizing that this definition varies from person to person, for me, my goal is to be simple and clean in my approach in any medium, providing just the right amount of information to the viewer to be effective in giving my subjects a strong sense of movement and their right sense of place, I consider these components key in the success of my paintings.”
