Although among his ancestors were many artists, his own intense creative steps are only dated back 1961. Since that time, however, he paints - first figurative, then in the mid-60s he turns into abstract painting. Between 1969 and 1972 he organized various exhibitions for artist friends. In the last two decades of his professional career he worked for Bavaria Film, until he finally turns towards art as main occupation in 2001.

Most of his paintings are created in an intuitive act in which by constant application of many layers of paint, which are washing-off over and over again, slowly and in many steps the desired result is achieved. He follows only his own sensations, allows again and again accidental occurrences, and nevertheless ensures that the process is always very controlled. Apart from exceptions, he doesn’t want his works to reflect reality, reproduce anything, thus he neither doesn’t want to create illusions nor tell anything. He primarily wants to express himself via free form and color and of course hopes to release an inspiration in the viewer.
