“For many years I have been enjoying the wonderful lessons and support from my revered teachers DEREK STEIN and –for a shorter period-MARCEL CHETRIT. I loved to work in watercolor, to try to do quick sketches and much more. Then, slowly I felt the need to change, to go beyond my trodden paths and to find different ways. I discovered acrylic paint and started to go abstract. A total change, another world and I fell in love with it. It means looking at painting in a different way, to open up, to let the eyes and thoughts go into the unknown, a story without borders. Since then I have been following that unknown path, challenging and difficult, but great fun to try finding my own language!!!”
