Q: What is your favorite subject to paint?

ANSWER: Over the years I have shifted across themes and subject matters: people and faces, flowers, horses, abstracts. I think today I am mostly attracted to the abstract theme as an evolution of everything I have done in the past. At the end of the day, what I love is the process of playing with colors and shapes and the fact that I can apply it to everything that crosses my imagination.

Q: If you could only take one thing from your studio to keep with you, what would it be?

ANSWER: My dog. He is part of my creative process.

Who is the most important role model or mentor you’ve had in your life?

ANSWER: My professor of composition. Now, he is 82 years old and he still does a large mural every year. I have given up murals, but I would like to think that I will have the stamina and love to keep creating artwork forever.
