Artist Statement First let me apologize for a forced long hiatus following serious health problems. I'm back!

I love digital painting, fantasy subjects as you might have guessed :-) I also love photography, paper-maché, mosaic, Hanji (Korean paper art), origami. I am a fierce rock-hound and collect minerals, rocks and fossils. Love Medieval castles and old Victorian houses.

After graduating from Liberal Arts Studies in Europe, I made a sharp turn and decided to learn a few facets of art (including some architectural design) preparing a career in window-dressing at Ecole-des-Beaux-Arts. My early moving to the United States in NYC changed this plan, opening new doors. Nevertheless I always kept an avid interest in art.

These days I mostly paint digitally and love to experiment, blending direct mouse-drawing with a photograph and multiple external plug-ins applied to targeted areas. The colorful butterflies were born this way and a few were finalists in International Juried Digital Art Competitions. PSP and Corel Paint Shop Pro are my preferred software, however I also use Photoshop Elements at times. Computers are kind to me, so let's see what will materialize later.

Proud to be listed in "Digital Artists and Illustrators" the directory for imaginative art, dedicated to digital illustrators from around the world! At: Fantasy-Artists.Co.UK.
