I get inspiration from the landscape that served as a backdrop to most of my childhood experiences. I find emotional resonances in this landscape. The feeling of a place is more important to me
than representational interpretation. Recently I have been painting in oils on metal. The resultant paintings seem to have an extra luminosity and vividness, which serves the purpose of creating
images that are sharp and intense.
