I like switching from one painting technique to another. I use water- colour for my outdoor sketches. I draw with crayons, pastels
and paint small oils as preparation for bigger works. I work a lot on those last works, larger oil colours or big watercolour drawings and you can see I am very figurative.

I live near the ocean where I was born and the sea influences  all my work. See
