I'm a self taught artist, I have a degree in Biology and teach in a high-school. My paintings tend to be more like illustrations, as the subject prevails over the methods of painting. Ideas for new paintings usually come to me easily, when I'm quietly following my flow of thoughts. That's the old surrealist recipe. I don't like to paint quid pro quos (objects that transform into something else). The objects and scenes may be absurd or comic, or surreal, but they should also be detailed, like dreams are.
I have exhibited in Portugal, Holland, USA and the UK. In May 2009 I was featured in the Russian Esquire magazine.
