You and Your Work
What inspired you to pursue a career in art?
My training is in engineering. I was lacking creative freedom, which prompted me to pursue a career in art and design. A blank page with no limitations is quite a nice feeling.
If you could articulate your philosophy about watercolor in one sentence, what would you say?
It is purely hedonistic. I search for joy in the act of painting, and enjoy contemplating my work afterwards.
If you could articulate your philosophy about light in one sentence, what would you say?
The darker, the better.
