“I remember a particular moment in a market in Spain when I was fifteen years old. There was a toddler sitting in a cart, crying. Their mother turned around, delicately split an apricot in two, and brought it to the mouth of the wide-eyed child. The light was shining perfectly on them and it was such a tender and resplendent moment to witness and has been engrained in my memory ever since. Almost all my paintings are moments similar to this - an instant or a view that bewitched me and that I want to share with others. I want to do more than just replicate nature however. I want to use composition and lighting to bring my audience's attention to the right elements of my piece - help them see the beauty I’ve tried to crystallize. Before working on a painting, I spend hours doing research and put together the perfect color palette. I work in layers, from china ink to washes and various stages of colors. That’s my attraction to oil painting; you can slowly build layer by layer a richness of color and depth that I feel no other medium can match. I take the time to construct a painting that can take me back to that initial emotion and state of mind.”
“My brush strokes, and the decisions I make at that particular moment, are always a translation of my personality. No matter what I do, what is on the canvas is an interpretation of what I see and feel. I seek to share my expression with others, showing them the beauty I interpreted to let them do the same. I don't aim to tell anyone what to feel, but instead to share something that will hopefully move a viewer as much as it moved me. Even the simplest moments in life such as choosing a melon in the market, playing a few strings on the guitar, or taking a breath and relaxing after a long day at work, hold beauty.”

The Art Storefronts Organization has verified that this Art Seller has published information about the archival materials used to create their products in an effort to provide transparency to buyers.
Archival Quality paint must have certain qualities. The first is the paper itself. The paper or canvas must be manufactured using pure alpha cellulose fibre, pure cotton fibre or a combination of the two materials. This will ensure the paper base is pH7 or above or acid free. A paper that contains lignin cannot be acid free as lignin is a naturally occurring acid within plant fibres. It is the lignin content in newsprint paper which causes it to yellow and go brittle over time. Next the paper is coated for preparation of printing. This preparation changes depending on the machine and paper used. The coating is applied to the surface of the paper base to ensure that the ink is absorbed in just the right amount. Once a coating is applied, the pH value (acidity) of the entire paper changes. The only way for this to be addressed is for manufacturers to ensure that the coatings used on their papers are as close to acid neutral as possible and to supply the pH value of the total paper (base and coating) rather than just the base. Then the ink is applied to the Archival paper. In order for a print to be considered An Archival print the inks used are pigment-based instead of dye-based. Finally; to maintain your Archival Print, below is a checklist.: 1. Ensure all the materials used to mount, frame and store finished prints are acid free. 2. Display your own prints out of direct light, in an environment with stable temperature, and humidity levels.
