I guess I can say I enjoy to create, whether it is an oil painting or an etching, it does not really matter what I am creating, as long as I enjoy what I am doing. I think it is the whole process of being immersed in my work while creating it, my eyes see something, my heart gets a feeling for the subject and then, the final stage, my hands make the artwork. Life inspires me - people around me, the beauty of God's creations - I try to capture this all in my art.
I mainly print limited edition polymer etchings in my home-based printmaking studio and paint atmospheric seascapes and landscapes in oil on canvas.
My atmospheric seascapes were selected by a jury to be published in Internationale Kunst Heute 2015.Only 127 carefully chosen contemporary artists from 48 countries were selected for this prestige publication, launched at ARTMUC in München in May 2015.
My name is listed in Art in America Annual Guide 2015, the release date of this prestige publication was August 2015.
I was selected by the Selection Committee to exhibit my art at the XIIth Florence Biennale at the Spandolini Pavilion, Fortezza da Basso, Florence, Italy from 18 to 27 October 2019.
