Excellent interview with Artist and lectures on art. His portraits hace been exhibited at the National Portrait Gallery. This interview 2014, which rather dated does give some interesting background to the artists development as a contemporary painter who has been trained in the Italian classical style.
The interview was produced by the Oneogallery. A contemporary art gallery in Prince Edward County, Canada.
