My artistic career began in mid-eighties London where I made my living as a professional portrait artist, whilst taking life-drawing classes at St. Martins School of Art
Despite tempting offers such as working as a fashion designer on London’s King’s Road or an exhibition in a New York gallery I kept to my path. I simply loved drawing and painting people, and I wasn’t ready for New York.
Fate had me destined for Europe, namely Bavaria. It was here that I had my first solo exhibitions and developed my career as an artist for real.
Later I moved over here to the east of Berlin and since 1994 have enjoyed watching the former GDR’s dynamic changing landscapes as it transforms into a new economy. This inspires me and reflects my own artwork – ever-changing, but individualistic.
