"It took my management some effort and time to convince me about the idea to open up this website.. - everybody has one these days - and I´ve always had an instinctive reservation against any kind of conformity. After all, I´m trying to offer something unique and special and by now I´m very conscious about the risks and dangers for any kind of art, anything precious in general, if it is available randomly...

However, risks have to be taken - and new ways to be found:

The purpose of this website is simple - it is a place, where you, as the visitor can find out more about my work as a painter and as a composer of paintings.
Quite a few of my works are on display, new ones will be added, of course, and maybe I will supplement the occasional comment, thought or explanation from time to time.

Thanks for taking the time and enjoy!"
