I like order and am exceptionally neat, as found in the architectural process.
i have studied European artist, among others: Walter Elst, Rob Mohlmann, Henk Helmantel, the Pre-Raphaelites, Fuz Caforio are some of the profound Artists whom have shaped my approach.
My process of art making develops through curiosity, exploration, discovery and invention. Attention to detail, good craftsmanship and a compilation of eclectic textures are also an essential part of my work.

I am very passionate about art making, and my inspiration comes from observing light, especially the magic that sunlight adds to life. However I feel that art is not merely an observation of light, but also the active participation in the world around us, as Art making is an endless process of problem solving.
My aim is to capture the essence of my subject matter in such a way, that my work captivates the viewer into participating in my perceptive loop.
