as men can breathe or eyes can see, So long lives this and this gives
life to thee.' William
Shakespeare, Sonnet 18.
'I applied streaks and blobs of colors onto the canvas with a palette
knife, and I made them sing with all the intensity I could.' Wassily
I was born in Malta in 1965, and work in
Malta as a consultant paediatrician with a special interest in
paediatric cardiology. I live in Pembroke with my wife, two children and
three Siamese cats, and have found painting Maltese landscapes and
seascapes a particularly relaxing pastime. This medium is oil on canvas
with a painting knife and John Borg Manduca, the famous Maltese
impressionist artist, is my inspiration and mentor. These paintings tend
to be both Impressionist, Expressionist and Fauvist, and here are some samples of
my work. My paintings are of varying sizes, from 30 by 20 cm to 180 by
80 cm, and are for sale.
