My subjects, techniques, etc. are largely mainstream traditional. I love the natural world and situations in which humankind and nature have achieved a harmonious balance. I believe that artists can contribute to this ecological balance by constantly and artfully affirming its value and beauty. This is what makes us modern artists regardless of our particular style. I am passionate about the old masters and have spent many wonderful periods alternating museum study with landscape painting, especially in Europe.
