How would you describe your art - in one sentence, or a short phrase.
My art seems to be “inside out”, infused with raw energy and strong strokes with markings. They are not realistic images...a fusion of graphics/concept/minimalism....the term expressive/gestural fits in more.

Photo of you in your studio; or beside an art piece that you like.

One sentence to describe your studio / the place you work.
I work in the patio of my 1950’s bungalow....using daylight as the main source using a plywood back as support for the canvas...

Photos of your 3 best artworks, the title and a short description.

THREE TREE:
...in my mind, l do abandon the clarity of thoughts and let my spirit creep into dreamland for the respite of my soul.


TRUTH:
Where is the truth...almost always in the reflections...not always with what we are wont to see.


HOPE:
Beyond the terror on the long dark night, hope beckons beyond.

How you work with your clients - a short description of how you develop concepts and ideas, and collaborate with your clients.
My first preference is not to accept a commission as I do want to paint what is within rather than adhere somewhat to guidelines to which I may fail to satisfy.

What/who inspires you?
The many thousands of art and artistes out there: in books, online, or at galleries. I often bookmark those that I like and later on, scroll them and let whatever strong impressions that overcome me by a particular piece linger in my mind and then think about how I can incorporate the strong impressions of concept in my next piece.
