The essential theme of my works is nature, undisturbed by the agency of civilization. My graphic works are effects of inspiration brought to me by sailing in the sea and traveling. Nature is incessantly the main motif in my works in which I show the magic and beauty of the natural world. Throughout the entire period of my artistic work, in my compositions there are recurrent scenes of extensive coasts, mountain ranges, fjords, arctic glaciers and mysterious islands.
