I am a self-trained artist; no art college has crossed my path. I have had private lessons by several (international) artists for techniques.
I did not start artwork until I was 36 years old. After all those years I walked into the world of art and felt myself at home.
My very first sculpture was a rhino in bronze; I treasure it though it was in all ways a great failure.
