"What you see should take you to what you could see."

Presentation & Biography

Despite pursuing a career in upstream oil and gas, I'm passionate about art, visual arts in particular. 

Started drawing early in my life, completing my first “real painting” (The Rehearsal) in 1984. I’ve found more time for my painting since taking early retirement in 2018, currently trying hard to build a portfolio.

Also like photography, have a collection of old cameras I’m using.

Live and work in Romania.

I’ve occasionally exhibited at different events in Kazakhstan and Romania.

Sold my first painting early November 2019 at a charity auction!  

I’m influenced by end 19th century – first half 20th century Russian and Romanian artists.

Believe art message shall be accessible to as many groups and backgrounds as possible hence choosing figurativism.

I like exploring light, contrast and composition to attract the viewer and directly convey the intended message.
