I developed a love for the natural world at an early age. The perfection of a tiny insect or a bird soaring under the endless sky never ceases to amaze me. The only place where I can truly relax is with my family enjoying the beauty of nature. Sadly, over the last few years, more and more of this beauty is being ruined by the “well bred” tourists who simply leave their rubbish wherever it may fall.

In Tg. Mures, I met a very enthusiastic group of bird-watchers. These dedicated individuals have taught me a tremendous amount about birds. This lead to my doing some bird illustrations. I was later requested by the Milvus Group to illustrate a field guide. I was a bit overwhelmed at first by the huge amount of work this would entail; however, as I gained more experience with water-color I began to really enjoy painting. This experience has helped to build a deeper passion for art and nature.
