Passion for Art

I paint ever since I can remember. One of my first memories is from me painting with only water. My grandfather didn't want to give me colours, because I would make everything dirty. I don't know why, but my dream has always been to become an artist and to create art. This passion has been driving me sins my childhood and has given me power and motivation trough all of my life.

Thank you for visiting me on internet. You are welcome to browse through my Galleries anu Live Art events, or maybe you are interested in some of my Art Classes. I hope you will enjoy looking at my Art.

" I don’t think the theme is so important to me. For me is important the contact point to my heart… what happens there, when a theme, an Idea, get in touch with me… did this produce a fire … I am kind of a “feeling” person, it has to burn inside me."

I love painting portraits!

Portrait painting is a very big deal in my art. I love to discover the person behind the face.

If you would like to order a portrait, I will be happy to come in touch with you.

An assignment usually takes one to four weeks to complete.

Prices vary with size and composition and are set in agreement with the costumer.

Once an agreement is made on a portrait, a deposit of 30% of the price is paid.

The final payment is made when the portrait is finished.

Upcoming and Ongoing:

11 - 25 Feb 2020 "Der Garten ind die Seele",

Soloshow at Haus Wittgenstein, Vienna, Austria.

My works can be also seen at the moment in the Permanent Collection of the Phantasten Museum in Vienna, Austria; in the Permanent Collection of the Museu Europeu d'Art Modern in Barcelona, Spain; in the Kleine Galerie, Vienna, Austria; in the Mollbrinks Konst Gallery in Uppsala, Sweden; in the Gallerie Maringer, St. Pölten and Atelier an der Donau, Ybbs, Austria
