Growing up between my mom’s oil paint tubes, pots, brushes and pencils, I’ve seen the most beautiful art come alive, starting from an empty self-stretched, canvas. Having seen this magic, I could not resist to start painting myself. With my art, I am on a mission to make people happy, interiors look more refined and bring some color to the boardroom. It felt natural to experiment with photography too as it allows me to catch the moment in a snap. Moving slow and moving fast as it were.
Combining techniques, gives me the freedom to express the essence of the work’s subject. Do not be surprised to see oil pastel on acrylic paint or charcoal. Discover my ‘prussian blue’ works – a complex alternative photographic method, invented some 180 years ago.
Creativity has always been a driving force in my life. While being an actor and presenter on the screen, I took photos to capture the life back stage. I love to work with my hands, creating my own ideas, experimenting, drawing and painting. When not holding pencils and brushes, I’m holding tight to my tennis racket or golf clubs, to relax and re-charge the batteries.
So, now you know why there’s always paint on my hands.
