This work represents my striving
as the musician does for the pure lyrical note, as the dancer for balance and interpretive powers and as the athlete for the supreme effort that transcends discipline. It springs from a deep sense of gratitude for the gift of awareness, which more than the satisfaction of doing something I really love, is a source of daily joy.
I am fascinated by rhythm and design in nature, whether formed by the play of light and shade, the undulating layers of the land or the intricate detail of a close-up. Designing a painting is, for me, first, a patient process of simplifying modeling and abstracting what I see. Then, by working within a limited palette, I try to create the feeling for the subject, aiming for harmony and tranquility of colour
