Through his craftsmanship in Brighton, England, he breathes life into these pieces, flooded with emotion from the realistic details. His works demand attention on their unusual canvases, which make them stand out even further. His work is an effectual amalgamation of his recollections and encounters, commonly taking the form of birds or scenes brimming with feeling. Recently he produced monochromatic etchings depicting a heron’s delicate wispy plumage and a diptych showcasing hands, two gently holding on to a tulip while another tight grips rope.
