Painting is a need for me through which I "breathe more easily."
Usually I am busy with a certain topic for a certain period of time. I explore and
study it from different angles, in depth and to the fullest.
Then I pause, observe, check, wait a while and move on to exploring another topic.

drawing, acrylic and oil on different formats such as canvas, paper, wood and metal.

periods in my life, when I am led by emotions, My tool to express them is the paint
brush. Then I express my feelings intuitively and automatically and these lead and
direct my work. While creating, I am in a kind of meditative trance. The colorful
are uncontrolled and the textures stem from my subconscious and reflect my emotions
and mood. At the end of the process, the painting is an abstract and expressive nature.

every possible angle. When I complete one series, I can move on to the next. This

Creating is my tool to explore my surroundings and it colors my life and makes it
