Many of you don’t know this about me, but I am interested in criminology. I did not took a career in law enforcement, but I do believe that painting and investigating have something in common – a skill of observation and ability to use the imagination for re-creating the details. When I paint a scene – not a crime scene, just a scene – I try to feel the temperature, the humidity of the air, I imagine the sounds surrounding me, the feeling of the ground under my feet. I’m there.
