” I have never been confused about my life as an artist. A moment that has been very special to me occurred during my first travels to Italy in 1992. I met Master works at significant art galleries and the experience I had with them totally transformed my practice. I promised myself I would be a real artist achieved through hard work. I have great admiration for John Singer Sargent and Joseph Zbukvic. They are real masters with the ability to capture beauty from magical brush strokes and tone."
