I came to painting later than most artists.
My formal education was in music (violin and composition), yet after school I found my way into a practical career as a computer programmer.
Painting was always an intense curiosity for me, though.
So, for my 30th birthday, I purchased a small oil painting kit. This weekend hobby took on a life of its own, and after several years I left my comfortable life in technology to pursue this more uncertain – and much more satisfying – path.
I have painted still life exclusively for the last dozen years. I find it to be the perfect synthesis of tradition and exploration, and for me it is the ideal vehicle to search for both the inner and outer light.
I am deeply honored that over 700 collectors have chosen to bring my paintings into their homes, with many of them collecting multiple works.
