My reason for painting is to use various mediums and to explore key compositional elements, and bring them forward through my use of colour and texture. This also provides me with the means to expand my abilities through constant experimentation. I am very inspired and influenced by Cezanne, Rothko, Warhol and many more. I think that a painting should be first and foremost, a painting. Meanings are extra layers, not the foundation. I draw inspiration from movements like Impressionism, and abstract expressionism.
