Drawing and painting have been central to my life since childhood - when I was surrounded by the pictures and working environment of my parents. Drawing and painting is a language to me. I studied the grammar of this language first in drawing, then in composition and then in colour. I try to use this language to describe and express my feelings about the visual world and to attempt to make non-visual ideas visible.

My work is divided into objective, descriptive painting - landscapes, still life, etc., and inventions - my imaginative figurative paintings. The aerial views are somewhere between these two types - since they need to be objectively convincing, yet seen from an invented viewpoint.

I would like to think that my work is accessible to all people. It is one of my firm beliefs that an artist should be an active member of society and not an exile from it, and that art is strongest when it is closely connected to society.

My objective is to make strong images, which people will respond to immediately and will not tire of easily.
