Very much self tought by painting

Art has always played a part in my life, in a way or another. I workd in a health care field. I have paint in my leisure time and cradyally became a visual artist. I paint mostly with oil colours. Large
surfacys and plenty of colours get me surrender for feelings. Nature is close to my heart, its variety
opens many doors. Sceneries, large surfases and small ditails facinate me. You can find power, feelings, sensitivity and smell of nature, what a spectrum of colours in different seasons. How amazing are sunrises and sunsets, how wonderful is the music nature provides – water, bird singing and wind. I am an impressionist, I paint what I see and experience.
