Describe your art. I paint watercolors and oil on canvases.


Those sound like two different things. I am dealing with two sorts of opposites here. I think my style is impressionistic; it’s a bit out of focus. My oils are quite painterly. I like brush strokes and I like what paint does. On the other side of the coin watercolors are quite transparent.


Looking around the studio, it’s obvious you have traveled a lot.


I’ve been to many places that most people do not get to go. I have had a 10-year affair with Africa and recently discovered India.

And you carry those travels into your art? For me travel always changes your life. And wherever the trip may have been, I always return looking at life a little bit differently. I go somewhere every year and the result is continually changing colors and feelings in my painting. [Travel] does provide great inspirations, but a walk on our beach can be a great inspiration as well.
