Bio

 

I am an Anglo-Swiss artist with a passionate commitment to the European tradition of painting, fine art and its associated philosophy. My main interests in painting are movement and light. I create “living pictures”. I capture what I see around me in sketches and use these studies to inspire paintings and prints which I sell commercially and also exhibit. I love to delve into other worlds, be it by reading, drawing or painting. I paint to express myself, to hide myself in the process of making the work. The categories of “Aesthetics in Art” by Immanuel Kant and 10 years study of Art Theory & Philosophy inform my personal artistic vision.
