My love for art started at the age of 4. I was always eager to draw and paint everything that fell before me.
From 1952-1957 I attended the Escuela de Bellas Artes in Madrid, Spain for drawing and oil painting. From 1962-1966 I took part in different exhibits in the city of Sydney, Australia. In the 1980's, I was oil painting images of Herman national icons on one-of-a-kind pieces of furniture for a German cabinet maker.
Most recently, I exhibited twenty painting at Cedar Ridge Gallery, Toronto in April 2006 and Art Cube,
Toronto in May 2007.
I am always painting and have exhibited and sold quite a few works over the years. Currently I am looking to exhibit my work in new venues throughout the city.
I started drawing and painting at the same time that I learned how to walk. As an artist my main passion is painting and my favourite medium is oil. I believe in painting many subjects.
I love nature. When I paint a specific event in nature, I feel like I immortalize a moment.
I love animals. I am inspired by animals because they follow their own path and are loyal to the destiny that they are born for. We were born into a certain way of life and often we change our behaviour and then follow a crippled path. When I paint animals I look at the way they behave and pose and how they stay true to their character.
I also like painting people and portraits. I paint them the way I imagine them in my mind. My kind of art work requires a lot of concentration and attention to detail. In each painting there are a lot of fine details in brushstrokes and colour schemes.
I sort of fall in love with each piece. In my opinion paintings are company, even when I am by myself at home I do not feel alone. I have the company of all the people and animals living in my paintings that hang on my walls.
When I sell a painting I have mixed feelings. I feel a little sad that I will not see that painting ever again. I also feel good that other people like to have the company of my paintings in their own homes.
I paint everyday, so there is always new company.
