The "light of the World" I perceived 1971 in Salzburg/Austria.
After spending 15 years of Youth in Bad Gastein I was moving to Salzburg City in 1986.
Already in my earlier Youth I felt the smouldering ember of my artistic desire, waiting for one breath of
air to ignite the passion burning within me.
The increasing pressure to compete in the corporate world lead me in July 1995 to Australia from my
native Austria. Here amongst the chatter of cicadas and the cry of the Kookaburra the ember ignited.
It was the realization of my need to express myself through painting.
After my return to Austria it continued and started to burn.
My predilection for wild animals I found on the 6 months journey in South Africa in 1996/7.
Where my first exhibitions followed.
The urge for new inspiration has brought me in 2000 to the caleidoscopic world of Amsterdam
where the Yin Yang completed.
With pride I see myself autodidact with no formal art school influence and express my artistic feelings
without compromising style, design or technique.
It is my desire that the enthusiasm engendered in my pictures will ignite a flame of passion in the heart
of the observer.
