Om konstnären

I have always expressed myself somehow, mostly through sport. I used to do some martial arts and won the world championship in Shinzenkai fullcontact karate year 2000. Karate gave me so many different dimensions where to feel comfortable and good. After quitting I felt something was missing in my life. So I started to dance. Music and dance gives me a kind of freedom. It still was not enough for me. I started to dive, where I have found the inner peace and meditation meanwhile being able to look at the beautiful sealife underneath the surface. I also enjoy teaching other people to dive and that way share my passion with them. I have discovered how the sea is important for the wellbeing of humanity and in how bad condition the oceans of our earth is.
I started to paint because I still felt a need to be creative and to express myself more than I already have. I will donate 10 % of every sold painting to the project AWARE, which is a global movement of scuba divers protecting our ocean planet.
