Artist Statement
” Painting is an evolutionary search. It is at once intuitive, emotional and spontaneous. It is a mysterious, psychological process to which I am drawn, always striving to unravel the enigmatic characteristics of the paint. The solution will never be found, but the search is necessary, enjoyable and fulfilling.

Don’t copy nature too much. Art is an abstraction

Paul Gauguin 1848- 1903
