"Is there a better way than art to bring people from all over the world together in a celebration of beauty? Painting is the way I reach out to people.  My favorite tool, the palette knife, allows me to keep the deep pigments in the acrylic paint, my preferred medium. In each painting there is a little something unexpected, a small “je ne sais quoi”, at the point of creation, which makes my art original.  It can be an odd stroke, an unnatural balance, a particular color or design… My inspiration is to paint until I find my own balance where the art lover can feel an emotional and/or intellectual connection. My quest is not to create the illusion of reality but to suggest with colors and composition the inherent nature of the aesthetic object or feeling."

  1. "The Circus"' is one of my favorite and was inspired by a circus show in Milton High School. The coach of this program is an ex performer at The Cirque du Soleil. Year after Year Milton High School put up a show that has nothing to envy to professional show. It is just Incredible. Enjoy
