Welcome to my Artweb gallery.
It tells a short story of my journey as an artist. I hope you like my small selection of paintings. If you double click on the images they enlarge.
I started painting in Bucharest, Romania in late 2003. I needed desperately to calm my traumatised mind. It has since become a beautiful friendship with my brushes, my paints, my canvasses, my paper and the so many bits and pieces that find their way into my painted stories. Art changed my life - hugely for the better.
Two small paintings on this page are where it really all began for me, in England, in 2004. "My image of England" and "A sailing boat" were among my very first paintings ever. Even then the pattern for my paintings, the use of vivid colours, was set. My "Intuitive Dragonfly" uses vivid colours in an intuitive art painting.
Having grown up under a brutal Stalinist regime (my story is here) where there were rules for everything, and everything around me was grey, and life itself was grey, art released in me a strong desire to break free, to think, act and paint for myself - and in particular I wanted to bring the vivid colours of this wonderful planet to my walls.
