I believe that we are here on this planet by accident and not for long, actually. And because our existence is meaningless we shouldn't take ourselves so damn seriously. If we could do this our lives would be 100% more tolerable. Our duty is to be happy, honest and free. Free in our minds. I hope I express this way of thinking in my paintings.
I am a very independent person, and probably my paintings are too. Not difficult, but every painting is different. There is not only one style that I like to work in.
I have lived in several countries and I travel a lot and all the aspects and characters and cultures of the diverse countries, people and landscapes have a big influence on my development and growth as an artist.
I have painted my whole life but I never made a full-time occupation of being an artist. However, from 2003 I have decided to do so. I spend most of my time painting and writing, and I regularly exhibit my paintigs and publish my poems (including several radio interviews and my own poetry readings).
