"There have been many influences in my art, but the strongest have been the classic beauty of the Renaissance master painters; Caravaggio, Rembrandt and Vermeer.
Called by the dramatic use of dark and light, I try to create paintings and drawings that are gentle, mysterious and eloquent. As a portrait painter and figurative artist I have always been fascinated with people, and showing the strength and subtlety of light falling on the human form.
