The Artist

“I believe that when an artist paints, we don’t paint what we see in front of us, we paint our feelings, which are created by what we are seeing. I like to capture the life, the vitality and the warmth of my subjects, whether it’s a wolf sunning in the forest light, or a swan back-lit on lake casting abstract reflection for me to paint. I really feel that I have succeeded when someone looks at one of my paintings and can’t help but smile.”
