"Ever since I remember I have had the drive for art, even though my former studies and profession have little to do with art. In 2006 I attended St.Ives School of Painting, Cornwall, UK, where I had an excellent opportunity to learn impressionist and abstract inspiring Art techniques, painting the seascape and Cornish countryside with great teachers, friends and stunning environment, using acrylics, watercolors and oils. Have had the honor of performing solo and collective exhibitions."
