Animals have something very special for me. I love to be around them and hope that my paintings makes other people feel admiration for animals too. I enjoy painting; letting the beautiful colours, lines and shapes come together. In 2011 I went vegan and since 2016 you might notice this in the subject of some of my paintings. I regularly donate a painting to animal charity auctions.
