  • "I love looking at ideas of the past in Old Masters. They were made to tell you a story. Some of the portraits have the authority and theatricality... I enjoy looking at people from the past and how they portrayed themselves."

    "The painting is a stage but it’s also working like it has no script. The story is made up impromptu with no idea of how it will end. The women in the paintings are reinventions of historical portraits. I like to paint them as more vibrant characters, braver more colourful and alive."
