THE VISITOR – acrylic on masonite – 1994

GALERIE 10 - 50 Originale - Vernissage

Born in Felixdorf, Lower Austria, I lived and was educated in Vienna, where later I worked as a clerk in the Transport and Insurance Business. After completing service in the Austrian Air Force, I traveled throughout Europe, eventually settling in Stockholm, Sweden.

As a Painter I was initially self taught, studying in the various Galleries and Museums. In Vienna, I was often ‘hanging out’ at the Akademie der Bildenden Kuenste, where I admired the work of the “Wiener Schule des Phantastischen Realismus” represented there by the Professors Ernst Fuchs, Rudolf Hausner and Arik Brauer.
I emigrated to Canada in 1968, later entered the UofL Fine Arts Department and graduated in 1982 (BFA).
I worked for the CPR until my retirement in 2006.
2011 I returned to Austria, where I am currently living in Vienna and maintain a studio.
