"I live in the midst of nature; my themes are inspired by my context and the elements and events, which surround me. Here, deep in the hills overlooking the Riviere Rouge valley, I have found my place to reflect and create. I invent imagery, which avoids the sentimental, in favour of concrete and atmospheric forms, which express both my realistic and abstract human qualities."
