"My style is a mixture of soft, blended brushstrokes and carefully placed edges created with a palette knife to create some effects in my paintings which are not possible with a brush. The inspiration of nature - landscapes and waterscapes became the themes of my paintings. I find beauty in my surroundings and use oils to portray that beauty".
