Get to Know
I have had an interest for painting and all things art since I have recollection. I have a natural disposition for painting which has been, and continues to be developed by my personal studies, continued practice, and interaction with painters whom I consider mentors and masters in their field. My art has also been greatly enhanced by understanding physical and chemical laws and processes. This allows me to express my inner self in more complete manner and provide greater interaction between a painting and the spectator. All this makes my art a conscious effort in expression.
