My Bio

I AM A SELF TOUGHT ARTIST. I LOVED PAINTING SINCE I CAN REMEMBER BUT ALWAYS THOUGHT I HAD TO WAIT TILL I RETIRED! TO REALLY DO THIS BEAUTIFUL TASK... WELL, I´M NOT RETIRED YET, I´M AN ENGINEER AND HAVE WORKED MOST OF THE TIME IN  FINANCIAL AREAS.  IT´S BEEN ONLY 11 YEARS SINCE I DECIDED TO START  PAINTING WITHOUT ANY FORMAL EDUCATION  (MOSTLY   I´VE LEARNT A LOT THROUGH VIDEOS AND BOOKS) I´M STILL LEARNING BECAUSE THIS IS A NEVER ENDING PROCESS.

"Painting takes me out of this drabness, and helps me appreciate beauty, colours, as well as soothes me, taking me to a different plane out of this sordid world. It is a different matter that I have not achieved the high standards of painting. But even my attempts make me realise that there is something else beyond this material world."
