As a painter, much of my recent focus has been on the abstraction of the familiar urban, what we pass everyday and take for granted. For me, it is never about an exact representation, I paint to exaggerate or minimize color and form. I am not a realist I am a dreamer.
I also venture into occasional departures of pure color abstractions, which I also find quite satisfying.
In addition, I am continually working on (mostly large) drawings in mixed chalks, which are predomiantly figurative based. This body of work is my personal push towards the expression of emotion. Many are based in the ancient world and my feelings about our here and now.
It is exciting to have the opportunity to be an artist, for this I am grateful.
