I enjoy travel and art provides a context by which I can explore different cultures. I consider myself an abstract expressionist. I have been influenced by Rothko, Pollock and Riopelle. Lately, and probably due to my professional training as an engineer, I am inspired by the work of Gerhardt Richter. Painting is a release as such both emotionally and creatively. The making of the work is a very solitary task for me but I am also now enjoying sharing it- but they remain very separate activities.
