About the artist

i am an electrical engineer and i am married with two children. i have been painting on and off since the mid 1980's for my own pleasure but have only recently decided to show it to a wider audience. the work is very precious to me and is not only a portrait of the people i paint but of myself also. i love figurative work and i am not ashamed of that because it works for me. i admire people who paint abstract works and enjoy looking at their work but the act of painting it would not fulfill me. i have recently been a showcase winner on the excellent Artslant site and this has given me some confidence to develop.
