“Early on I made abstract paintings, yet my eyes would seek images and they beckoned. I usually start painting with an image in mind and it most often ends up looking different, and better, so, it is that triangle between the brain, the eye and the hand that interests me, and yields, for me, the richest experience of painting”.
