2. What do you paint with?
Usually I use acrylic paints on canvas. But every once in a while I paint with oil paints. I experiment painting on different surfaces - wood, styrofoam,different types of paper, wallpaper, metal.
1. Where do you get your ideas?
Anywhere and everywhere. I travel quite a bit, am interested in many different subjects and read a lot. I usually always have a sketchbook nearby and scribble out ideas and characters and painting ideas at random.

3. What type of acrylic paints do you use?
Most of my paints are Schmincke brand. They are a high-quality paints from Germany. Since I apply the paint on thick I like the consistency of the Schmincke paints.
4. So you paint mainly on canvas?
Yes. Most of my paintings are created on stretched canvas over a wooden inner frame. These high-quality canvas are made from heavy-weight cotton, covered with a coating of gesso that has been handsanded.
More and more I stretch my own canvases.
