I am an oil painter of symbolic and partially surreal paintings, preferring a classical technique of painting in multiple layers. Also an active and enthusiastic music composer, I first began painting in late 2004. I am self-taught and still learning.

I prefer the classical technique of painting in multiple layers because I think that pictures look better when painted in this way and the quality of the result should be paramount. The quality of the idea and content (the soul) of a painting is most important, but the body and appearance is important too and a great work must excell in concept and execution. I aim to produce only great paintings, and one sad day perhaps I will.
