Art is everywhere. With every glance of the world around me I ask myself, “Could that be a drawing?” or “How would I paint that?” I love to look at art. I need art. I need to make it and surround myself with it. For the past 40 years I have worked as an actor, musician and clown, but these are ephemeral arts. They don’t last. I have written many plays, and they will always stay there, but on the written page, not always on the stage. But visual art lasts. “Ars longa, vita brevis!” I feel good after I make something. We are here to create! Hence, this website. I want to learn and try new media, techniques and ideas. Have a look, enjoy, comment and even buy if you want.
