Drawing and painting have always been very important tools for me, creating images allows me to reflect on my ideas and also to share them with others.

Creating images by directly looking at nature is quite exciting but it is also an impractical process as it tends to require lots of time and a still model or landscape. Early in my career, I decided to embrace digital photography as the starting point to create my compositions; I saw them as guides that I could use to translate my thoughts onto the canvas.

“Chance is always welcome in the work I aspire to do, I enjoy random encounters, and I had plenty in Gozo and I was lucky to include some into the work. The people and their outlook and enthusiasm to life and the other has dramatically and positively contributed in the development of the work over the 6 weeks I spent between September and November 2016. I look forward to launching the exhibition in the government of Gozo April 8th 2017 and to see the mothers again after a while!
