As a child I was always drawing and tinkering. Drawing was the only subject where I received good marks. “But you can never earn money as an artist, just learn a serious subject,“ my parents said. That subject I learned was mathematics. But after nine years of being a mathematics teacher, I decided that my life could not only consist of numbers and formulas. In 2006, I made the decision to follow my heart and become an artist. As an autodidact I get my inspiration from nature and don’t hide my love for animals and bright colors. My work exudes positivity and that's exactly the intention. With my work I want to ensure that people take the time to stop and enjoy the moment. I want to draw attention to the beautiful and carefree things of life. That’s my mission: Making people happy with my work.
