‘Painting has remained the most efficient, most engaging method of self-expression in my life, it is a true love of mine. A form of meditation, inquiry and elucidation, it is an invitation to learn and evolve. As I grow older, I gravitate more and more to a fundamental expression of humanity in my work, our sentiment, our joy, our heartbreak seems to matter more than ever. My love of painting, its history and potential remain vital and exciting, I hope to see a future where painters continue to be relevant and valuable.’
