My artistic journey is rooted in the tradition of the Renaissance atelier apprentice who searches for the secrets of the master among the smell of colors and solvents and the rags and bristles soaked in color. From these magical tools the artist is capable of giving birth to works from a model, a thought, or a desire. Painting with oil on extra fine linen canvas, I favor the techniques and palette used by Caravaggio: the chiaroscuro, the predominant carmine and burnt umber tones, and the contours outlined with sanguine or metal tip. My preferred subjects are portraits, landscapes, and still lifes.
