Drawing and making sculptures is my passion. I use a lot of techniques: pencils, color pencils, oil, chalk, charcoal, acrylic paints and mixtures of them.

For sculptures I use some type of framework of metal mesh, construction steel bars, bring it into form and fill it with concrete, plaster, color it with sand, colored sand, acrylic paints. Some sculptures are just plexiglas brought into form with gentle heating and deforming, painting, drilling…

I like especially to draw people, women, men, which mirror in their faces and posture their life. Sometimes I also like to just make abstract paintings. My recent work concentrates on realistic drawings with color pencils.
