The artist's figurative paintings evoke a feeling of nostalgia and serenity with the protagonists often in a dreamlike state of meditative contemplation. Not only are his themes inspiring – 'Au mirroir' 'Masque' but his technique is masterly crafted to create wonderful textures and moods. Inspired by both the East and West, his paintings are a poetic fusion of Western oil painting and the Eastern wash technique. The artist achieves an almost antique feel to his canvases by layering thin paint to achieve a patina like finish on the surface of the canvas. His portraits have a wonderful feeling of innocence and simplicity of a by gone era.
