Painting is one of the best ways I have found to express myself,
And explore the world within & around us.
Influenced by observations and thoughts, as well as words of great men,
I create inspirational paintings... Images that will enrich my life
by provoking questions & self reflection.
Paintings that will make my soul grow...
Images that will hopefully touch your heart
as much as they touch mine.
I create my paintings
using simple deserted landscapes
combined with dramatic skies, to set a tone or mood
as to deliver a symbolic message...
A message that embodies and symbolizes
a particular human value, a feeling or Spirit;
To enhance, illuminate and to better understand...
What is Best or Worse in Them.
Welcome to Where...
Thoughts Become Paintings !
