Artist Statement

I’ve always been interested in people. The way they connect and see the world, their differences and devotions. Painting portraits for me is a blend of physical and emotional process, the energy and the power of brush strokes, textures and imperfections. All together it brings the freedom of exploring a deep human nature with its vulnerability and strength.
