1980    Marks the beginning of my concentrated artistic activities, creating my first expressions of art autodidactically with any form of painting element I could find, oils, chalk, acryl, crayons, water colors, india ink, gouache, etc.

Additionally and to aid my understanding of art, I immersed myseilf in literature, theater, music and philosophy, which gave my paintings a personal form of completion, which otherwise would have been absent.
