I took this detail from a picture of a girl, so you just see the dress, the skirt infact, that stands for femininity, and her naked knees who refers to a girl, not a woman. And I named this painting Our Father, the beginning of this allknown prayer, …a prayer for the seducer and a prayer for all who are quilty on childabuse, these days. (my reaction with this painting I guess…)

I am a painter inspired by the classical tradition of the old masters, but working on a distinctive figurative style who has a strongly contemporary and timeless perspective.
My technique is mainly oil on linen canvas and my quest is to seek out the human soul in my art work.
Beside the paintings I show you also a collection of etchings and drawings.
