I am a traditional oil painter with a passion for portraiture, figures, landscapes, and still life. Inspired by the Old Masters, my paintings tend to depict quiet, private places with an air of mystery and intrigue.
I paint in the style of classical realism, a form of representational art that exhibits a preference for order, beauty, harmony and completeness, and the representation of nature based on direct observation using traditional methods.
