His works consist of sculptures and paintings.
This is his explanation of his works and impulses of creation.
»A need for creation. A desire for beauty. These powerful inner forces, coming together in my own creations as they always have – like a play.
I liked being able to create what was unreachable for me. A twisted paper clip
only needed a few accessories and a little bit of imagination to become what i have been looking for.
And it was exactly as beautiful as i wanted it to be.
As the passing years left their imprints on me, my requirements and levels of my expressions grew with them. As in love as I was with art, I could not afford the works that inspired me and brought me joy. So I created my own. In my own way. As I can. And I stored them and i store them still. And now I wish to offer people a chance for my art to bring them joy and inspiration«
