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.
'So long 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.'
