I can't remember when I started drawing fantastic pictures. I always liked the fairy tales my grandmother told us. In school I painted 'things', creatures, dragons. The Hobbit was my first fantasy book and soon after I tried to read The Lord of the Rings, but it took me two more years to cope with it. Books like these inspire my fantasy and I have to paint or draw something. I do not all the time like painting, but if I see good pictures and drawings of other artists, I get motivated again ... I mostly was drawing with pencil, but I now try to do more colour art.
