I love photographs and I love classical painting. When I was sixteen I attempted to paint Michelangelo’s The Creation of Adam on my bedroom ceiling. Around the same time, my father bought me an air brush kit for my birthday and this is when I discovered the American photo realist painters such as Ralph Goings and Chuck Close. From then on, there was no turning back and I wanted to learn how to draw as precisely as I could. I also hoped that one day I would meet one of these amazing painters.
