“My preferred subject is to paint large portraits. It is very intriguing for the spectator to know who the personality is behind that portrait. The artists do not just paint people, we reveal ourselves through how we choose to portray that person. There is a deeper internal value than the image itself. Oil painting is my favorite medium. Although it takes time to dry, the paint has a magic that other materials do not have – the glazes, the shine, the different layers, the smell. All that is a treasure.”
“I have found people along the way who support me and believe in me, and that is the most important thing.”
