The Artist Says:


 
My preference has always been to express my feelings and impressions through drawing and painting. I attended the artistic community college in Vienna and took part in advanced courses of European and American artists, to expand my artistic perspective. Living part of the year in Europe (Vienna) and part in the US (Florida) I try to express the beauty that I see around me. The excitement of the change of seasons and the elusiveness of nature are what inherently draw me to paint plein air landscapes. To catch a special moment of a day is an on-going exploration of emotion and mood, of color and light during my painting process.. Plein air painting is a wonderful way to be outside and to be totally connected to the subject. But I also enjoy painting in my studio.
I believe that a successful painting has a certain rhythmic and lyrical quality.
