I was born in Vienna, Austria, educated in California, USA, and I live in Berkshire, England. I have a degree in Maths from the Universtity of California, where I also studied fine art. I also have an M.B.A. from the Open University and spent 25 years working in the IT industry. But in my soul I have always been an artist.
I am retired from the world of high technology now, and I have 2 passions. Oil painting and millinery. My first gallery contains paintings of horse racing scenes. It was my interest in racing that led to me learning how to design and create hand-made hats. I produce outrageous head pieces for Ascot ladies day. The second gallery contains portraits, some of which depict rock musicians. Rock music is another important part of my life.
I paint what turns me on. I hope I can convey and share the pleasure I get from these subjects with others.
