Painting as a hobby is fascinating, involving , but can also be equally frustrating as satisfying. Never having time to take up a structured course, my way of learning is by observing closely the work of all kinds of painters and absorbing the variety of their styles. In fact I visit art galleries habitually, whichever town or country I happen to be in and also here in London. It would be hard for me to pinpoint the painters who made the biggest impression on me, the list being rather long and diverse. I particularly like coming upon the artists, not previously known to me, whose work presents me with new ideas and new challenges. The greatest inspiration comes from my favourite, my only subject: people and their emotions. I like the idea that each person as a portrait subject should be given an individual artistic approach and style. Not everybody would agree, but it suits my passion for exploring and experimenting. It takes a long time to master anything in life and particularly to develop one's own style, but I fully enjoy the journey, however long it might be.
