ABOUT ME

Before becoming a painter I was a actor for theater and film. The reason why I changed my profession was because i missed  a certain creativity like actor. It was not possible to ceate realy something exeptional and unique. I felt like a ropoter making that what directors wanted from me to do. So I became hungry to create something new what is realy coming deep inside from me. And I am still hungry for it every day  planing art projects in edvance for years.

TECHNIQUE

Already from the beginning I started to work with acryl and gold leafes on canvas and still now mostly I work with and on this materials sometimes with exceptions. Speacily the gilding is always a big challange because there different typs of tecnics like the high gloss gilding and the poliment gilding.
