Already in high school I was allowed to carryout my own ideas in art education. Because of finan-
cial reasons the advice of my teacher to attend the Academy of Arts could not be followed.
Therefore I learned the occupation fo the trader. After some years as employee, I became the owner
of a radio and television shop. Because of my second passion music I decided to change the occupa-
tion some years later. So I succesfully sold music instruments up to the entry into retirement.
Now I am able to spend all my time on painting and on playing my keyboard instruments and I can pre-
sent my works in exhibitions and here on the WEB. Beside my own drafts, you will also find duplicates
of famous old paintings among my works of art.
