My paintings are essentially figurative. My chosen medium is oil on canvas. I also use gold leaf, which reflects light as if it were the light-source itself. Characters may be surrounded by motifs or ornaments which emphasize the symbolic aspects of the scene. I began painting when I was 22, but I have always drawn. Now drawing is for me more like a tool.
In nude or portrait work, my inspiration finds its source in myths, sacred icons and tales… Perhaps we can refer to these as "classic" inspirations, but for me they function exist as archetypes.
I have recently been inspired by the Tarot of Marseille, and encourage you to visit the new page I am creating around this subject.
