The passion for art – my communication and expression – has accompanied me all my life. My approach to art is mainly self-taught. From the beginning, I have used every opportunity to practice my drawing “craft” and to develop my understanding of art based on great paintings, for example, in museums, exhibitions, reviews, and books. This process is alive and still going on.

These are the cornerstones of my artistic work so far:

  • Independent freelance artist
