The basic for my work is the singular moment ,where man meets material and purpose stirs the soul into expression. A picture can entail a pattern that haunts me, and voyager into the picture in a sublime way. The picture should have an element of story in it. To paint has a double meaning to me, of creating and destruction of words and pictures of fantasy and strategy.
I create an ongoing process of stories which I form into picture quality. I get my inspiration from early glance at the fjord or a dark night in Singapore.
