Share a little about yourself, your ideas, and process. How did you approach your work? What motivates you as an artist? Are your passions or interests reflected in your work?
I've always been fascinated by the work of Salvador Dali and his talent for creating double images, which is why many of my paintings are double images. I also admire Dali's adherence to painting in the tradition of the Old Masters and by using his book "50 Secrets of Magic Craftsmanship" I am gradually learning his technique.
