In 2000 I met and studied with Professor Albert Hoffmann, a famous Austrian artist. Through his teachings, I discovered my favorite medium, watercolor.
Soon I was taking part in professional workshops and classes offered by well-known artists in Europe and America. I expanded my artistic perspective, indulging in acrylic and oil themes. Since 2003, I have participated in several art exhibitions in Austria, including two solo exhibitions at Castle Rosenau and Castle Rothschild, along with shows in Punta Gorda, Florida.
Living part of the year in Europe( Vienna) and part in the US ( Florida ) I try to express the beauty that I see around me.
I like plein-air painting most. The colors, the atmosphere are exceptional when painting on location.
Each painting is a new opportunity to explore and learn and is like a new journey. It is very meditative, a peaceful time, a time of deep concentration. It is also alone time and nothing seems as important as the motive I am focusing on.
I like painting watercolors and oils equally
Illustrations from my private collection can be found in both Europe and America.
Each time I paint, before I even choose a brush, I remember the words of Chi Po Shi. His perceptive contemplation serves my mantra:
Before one begins to paint, one should have his heart, hand, and thoughts on the tip of his brush.
