I was born in Belgium, educated in Slovakia, where I taught history and geography, also art, because of my early interest in it. My family immigrated in 1970 to Canada, where my new work assignments took my life path fortunately towards art. I worked over 20 years for Calgary University as a photography , graphic arts and cartography technician, took art classes at U of C and became active in art clubs. Painting became my favorite activity, I could honestly say that I became addicted to it.
I deepend my art knowledge by taking courses from admired and accomplished artist like Mike O'Toole, Tony Couch, Brent Heighton, Robert Genn and many others.
From the begining I painted in watercolors and my favorite subject were flowers [my garden was full of them]. Lately i use mostly acrylics and for figurative images conte and pastels. I gather my subject matter from the breathtaking mother nature itself. When we travel across North American expanse in our motorhome, I sketch, paint, take snap shots of the area. Once back in my studio I use collected material as a source of inspiration for my paintings.
Today my paintings are in many private and corporate collections.
Finaly I feel that my life has gone a full circle, and in some way completed in a roundabout way the jurney, that was initially set out for me.
