I began painting when I was 10 years old.
My step father liked to dabble with oils and thought it might be a good idea to try and channel some of my preteen energy into something productive; I was always drawing and I loved building model cars and airplanes that I would paint in craziest of designs.
He and my mother decided to hire a private tutor for me to help me better appreciate and understand art.
She taught me the fundamentals of composition and how to understand light and shadow. I learned pen and ink, watercolors and eventually oils.
To this day I still use her techniques.
Over the years, I moved away from using brushes to using palette knives and now I primarily paint with acrylics using wooden dowels, or ‘sticks’.
Painting with sticks gives me a much more organic interface between my mind and the canvas.
