I have a direct approach to painting in watercolor, trying to be true to the emotion inspired by the subject.
As a painter, my aim is to express the vibrancy of life simply and elegantly.
While painting, I try to stay constantly aware of the rhythm and breath in the composition, of the way light circulates in the picture plane, of how description and suggestion alternate and concur.
This highly dynamic process, and particularly so speaking of watercolor, makes each painting an exciting adventure.

Drawing and painting have been companions of mine since childhood, even though I practiced only sporadically. When I began to paint more regularly in 1996 while a research and development manager in the semiconductor industry, I already had a longstanding fascination for watercolor. I was then particularly drawn to the freshness, the economy of means and the strong suggestive power so characteristic of the medium and it still occupies the center stage in my work. Since 2006, the pursuit of my artistic journey has become my main endeavor.
self-taught, I however met several painters whose advice and guidance
were crucial in the shaping of my artistic approach.
