Philosophy

“Every painting is a new start and Every day is a new day to paint.”

Life is about searching for inspiration. Nature, my fellow artist friends, museums and sometimes the music in my studio helps guide my way. I really love dancing around all subject matters. It is not my nature to paint a specific genre and stay there. But, I love the challenge and excitement of new discoveries. And every painting is a new start and every day is a new day to paint. The learning never ends!
