“Growing up in a Modern Movement house designed by Sir Leslie Martin, in England, is most likely where my appreciation for art, design and architecture first took hold. I have lived in various parts of the world, where the environment around me heavily affected my state of mind. The quality of art, design and architecture always dictated whether I have been content and comfortable in my surroundings. Painting and photography allow me to create the colour and impact that I search for in everything else.”  – Tom Ritz
