1989 started working professionally in the field of silk screen printing in this period acquired my first knowledge with graphic design and Typography.
1994 I found the passion for restoring old antique wood sculpture and furniture. Through this work I learned many techniques in this field. Autodidact I learned wood curving, calligraphy and painting. Qualified friends in this field made this effort much easier for me. A particular interest in painting led me to pursue acquiring knowledge, through which I expanded and consequently developed my artistic style.
