I work with oil on canvas by exploring several issues that are dear to me . I do portraits, landscape, still life and figures. My inspirations are from scenes witnessed around me. With eyes on great deal of fine detail or complexity, my style is fit to convey the most intricate scene to the understanding with the utmost clearness.
