"I developed my work to create my own original, abstract language based on experimentation with materials found in everyday use.
My interest is in basic images. In late 2009, I began to investigate the foundations of contemporary painting (large-scale changes from the Academy; the Impressionists).
My current work is the transformation of Claude Monet's oil paintings, turning the works into a territory of optics using chromatic and textural experimentation."
