From the age of six my architect father noticed my curiosity and attempts to render my three dimensional world two-dimensionally.

He gave me an early grasp of the phenomenon of perspective that continues to remain one of my most powerful perceptual tools.
Along with those, the control of colour and form were taught by my art teachers.

These tools allow me to create the illusion of light, space and form on a flat surface.​
 

After a lifetime of painting I know that this methodology and style are not ‘gifts’, but rather skills acquired through commitment and constant

practice.
