“I was self-taught until last year when I started studying off and on with a teacher. I paint scenes from my life and am influenced by the seascapes of Thierry De Cordier, Antonio López Garcia’s interiors and Charles Paget Wade’s collections at Snowshill, England.
My paintings are meant to be a conversation with the viewer. They’re small because I love the concept of a cabinet of curiosities – peculiar bits of the world collected to be examined close up, at leisure. In my more recent work I’m exploring what makes an image mysterious or slightly disturbing.
A couple of my recent pieces are in a show right now but I’d like to be represented by a gallery so I can paint rather than sell my work myself.”
