“I fell in love with drawing as a child, although no one at home drew. Inspired by rock music, mainly art rock: Led
Zeppelin, Deep Purple, Black Sabbath, Jethro Tull, Yes, Genesis, Pink Floyd. Then there was a big break due to the worries of everyday life. About 10 years ago I felt the need to paint again, began to actively master information technology. Developed logos, vinyl album design for electronic music, music bars in Europe and even a science magazine in Scotland.”
