The Artist Says:


“I’ve always been a painter—I don’t remember a time when I didn’t have a brush or a pencil in my hand. My greatest satisfaction and joy in life comes from my family and from the great passion I have for painting. To see and translate into paint the great beauty all around us is truly a privilege”.
