Self-portraiture has been a part of the continuing process as an artist. Over forty years ago created the first self-portrait in oil modeled after Giorgio Morandi. What artist doesn't go awestruck after seeing his work?
Surrealism and symbolism have had a large influence throughout the artist's career. Giorgio de Chirico, Gaugin, Klimt and Frida Kahlo are among the sources of inspiration.
Drawing is fundamental to the work. The media ranges from graphite pencil, charcoal, colored pencils to china marker. Sometimes the drawings stand alone but often they are the starting place before creating a painting or a piece of jewelry.
