I started my painting hobby at Adult Education Centre at 1980. After spending 10 years with specialist artists guidance, I started to paint on my own. I have done aquarelle, acrylic and some graphic arts, but oil painting felt the best thing for me. For years I painted very traditionally topics; scenes, flowers, still lives and peoples. At 2005 I did my first naivistic paintings which grabbed me along with it.

Over the years I have took part several juried art shows and I have done few shows of my own.
In the winter I paint every week at my atelier, because it’s the most pleasant time of the year for me to do the art. The summer times instead I use downloading and enjoying the art by watching it.
