I paint to remember. Ordinary and familiar images that stir my emotions and imagination are my preferred subjects. The play of light on plants beside the street, the wild riot of uncultivated flowers in a neighbor's garden, or the rich colors
of a container of fruit seen on a trip stimulates my imagination. I like to find the beauty in the everyday and familiar.


 Art’s reputation must be due to the fact that it helps man to understand the world and himself,
and presents to his eyes what he has understood and believes to be true.
