Describe the extent of your talent as an artist:
I am a passionate and enthusiastic painter who find much outside. Plein Air Painting is my passion: the time of that one ray of sunshine or changes in the colors, I want to put it on the canvas. I do not like to paint from photographs, because you miss the feeling of that moment. That's why I work fast and smoothly and that is reflected in my style. You can often see me at work in a town, village or countryside with pen and watercolor. That one of my favorites pursuits besides painting.
Describe your early memories of your emerging talent as an artist?:
