I was born in Gmunden / Upper Austria and in fact I have been sympathizing with drawing and painting since my time in school, but still it was as late as 2006 when I began to paint intensively. And since that time I attend courses at Mag. Art Bogdan Pascu and Mag. Art Anton Petz.
I greatly prefer to paint people. Beside portraits I transfer people across all different cultures in their daily life to the canvas. For all that the multitude of my travels through different countries in Europe, Asia and Africa offers me the necessary motives.
My preferred material is acryl. Strong and warm acrylic colors and the vital compositions are typical for my paintings. Beside my love for painting my works show my interest in the people, their way of life and their fates too.
