“As a child, inspired by the images in the heavily textured white plaster surfaces, I used to paint and draw on my bedroom walls. I feel this is where my interest in art began.”

“Today I occasionally begin by drawing on the walls of my studio, as I compose studies for pieces prior to creating on canvas, wood, paper or other surfaces. Then with the use of gesso to prime the surface, I am similarly captured by the images that appear in the heavy white medium as the composition unfolds.”
