Statement

I am a figurative realist who is inspired by people and history. I work with oil, colour pencil and charcoal to create dreamy figures, portraits, and occasional landscapes. Although I am a realist, my goal is not to achieve photo-perfection but to enhance beauty and story with details. I also take commissions to create portraits. It is a great pleasure for me to be allowed to work on something that means a lot to my clients.
