About my art
Somebody once told me that when they look at my portraits it is as if they where looking at an X-Ray of the subject’s personality or essence describing what the sitter is experiencing at that specific time. It’s a subversive gaze into an unexpected world filled with humor, liveliness and a powerful energy that is created with spontaneity and freshness. For me there is nothing more interesting than a human face. It is a one off in the whole universe, however what makes it truly unique is what’s inside of it which is hidden to the naked eye. It is the soul and spirit that lie behind the human flesh. Whatever I paint, whether a portrait, a still life or a landscape, I search to get overall feel and essence of the subject.
I use the classical old school materials such as oil colors, paint brushes, wood and linen to make new and contemporary art. I am not really interested in trends or what is fashionable at the time, rather my focus and attention are directed to painting the here and now. I strive to make a painting with velocity and as much feel for the moment as I can imbue into the painting.
“The sheer excitement of looking and expressing myself is something I really love to do. This coupled with the pleasure of intimately observing people or nature is a thrill which has no substitute for me. Having ADHD, painting is the only time I find myself really concentrating and living the present.”

This coupled with the pleasure of intimately observing people or nature is a thrill which has no substitute for me. Having ADHD, painting is the only time I find myself really concentrating and living the present.
I’d like for the viewer to enter my world, to explore the paintings and feel something of his/her own. The energy and power which sometimes manages to come through is something I would really love to share with other people. Hopefully, after looking at my work a sense of pleasure, disgust, awe or simply happiness will make the viewer’s day that much more enriching.
