Artist Statement:
I believe that the mark of a good artist is to be able to capture the different facets of life in his painting -- the mode, ambiance, subtleties, etc. In a sense, not just illustrating or recording what he sees but expressing what he feels. As a plein-air artist (outdoor painting), watercolor was the perfect medium of choice: handy, quick to dry, yet delivers a truly magnificent work of art. "Trust me, if you paint with no fear and a smile on your face, you can paint a masterpiece every time".
