As a teenager,I grew up near Florence, Italy. Frequently I used to wander the streets of that city in my bicycle and admire the abundant works of art that are public display there.I was constantly engulfed in awe at the marvels that surround us. In addition to that the Tuscan countryside is really inspiring. In the early part of my adult life I spent little time in artistic endeavours. Eventually I decided to enrolled in a local art school, just hoping for the best. I spent many years painting like most people do. Stick figures which did not arouse emotions. But I kept on persevering till one day I was introduced to an accomplished artist Hennie who completely changed the course of my art career. Suddenly I could do fine art and could produce really high quality portraits, wildlife scenes and other. I could do anything. To test myself I successfully reproduced works like Mona Lisa, Girl with a Pearl Earring (Vermeer) and a Rembrandt, plus several other high quality portraits and wildlife scenes. Most of my works were quickly sold or in some cases donated to friends and family. I keep experimenting with new mediums and styles to see where this roads leads me to. My main medium is oil but have experimented with several other mediums like acrylic, pastels, and water colour.
