I'm devising a larger composition of Japanese macaques, in the meanwhile, a portrait of a macaque close up is completed. I went about the painting of this not just I would an animal, but that a human portrait. The objective I try to convey is to build a human connection.

I'm a Californian currently living in Atlanta. In the years of 2011 and 2012 I have the opportunity of spending an unforgettable year in the South of France in the city of Aix-en-Provence where I studied art history for the first time, and learned to look at art works and look at nature through a more mature and inquisitive lens. It was then when I learnt of what the pioneering artists were trying to achieve, and I try to pursue not their subject matters, nor their styles, but their principle. I see painting as a never ending process of self discovery, and a discovery of the relationship of myself and the world.
