hen we attempt to define art - to put it in tidy categories - we are skating on very thin ice. Personally, I have always been uncomfortable talking about my own efforts; believing as I do, that the artist is defined in his work - not the other way around. Art is different things to different people; and undoubtedly, we are all most naturally drawn to work with which we can make some personal connection. "If it looks good - it is good".

With my painter's roots deep in the rich and ancient soil of the great European pictorial tradition, I believe that art has to have something to do with beauty and with excellence.
I paint what interests me and after 40 years of practice, I no longer concern myself with style, nor techinique, nor markets. Since the life of the painter is an eternal journey of discovery, I am constantly challenged and often discouraged - but never bored.
