ABOUT THE ARTIST

I have love and respect for professional cyclists, and find beauty in cycling. The world of professional sports is not one that most people can step into, but it is a place where the greatest reality is born. I’m inspired by superhuman motion, courage, daring and the magnificent scenery.
