Story
Introduction
Born in 1944 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 Rudolf Hausner and Arik Brauer. Other members were Ernst Fuchs, Wolfgang Hutter and Anton Lehmden, who had studied together at the Academy under Prof. Albert Paris Gütersloh. 
In Stockholm, I found out that I was washing dishes in the very same Restaurant where years earlier another Viennese Artist, Fritz Hundertwasser , the ‘Austrian Gaudi’ as he was later known as, had worked the same job. Encouraged by an art dealer in Gamla Stan, I began to paint more seriously. Busking on the streets of Gamla Stan with a Dutch artist, my very first painting was sold to a passer-by by my artist friend while I stood in the employment office line - this paid for a lavish meal for both of us that day.

Traveling around in 1968, I wound up in Western Canada where eventually I settled in Lethbridge, Alberta. It was in Canada where the majority of my mature work was produced (under the sponsorship of a small Lethbridge Gallery).

Working for the Canadian Pacific Railway, I quit in 1977 to attend the Bachelor of Fine Arts Program at the University of Lethbridge, graduating (with great distinction) in 1982.

In Canada, I participated in many exhibitions, and held several Solo Shows, culminating in the pivotal 1994 showing at The Prairie Art Gallery in Grande Prairie, Alberta, which earned me the moniker The Mystic .

Throughout my years in Canada, I had been the subject of many reviews and newspaper articles as well as local television shows in Calgary and Lethbridge while being active as an Artist, Art Instructor, Curator, Studio Technician, Art Critic and Juror.

In  early summer of 2011 I returned to live in Vienna, Austria and began working in a studio at the Palais Palffy, which also houses the Phantasten Museum Wien as well as the Vienna Academy of Visionary Art.and  Prof. Ernst Fuchs had until recently a studio (we were 'Neighbors' then).
Since January 2015 my new studio in Vienna is at the KunstQuartierWien, Aichholzgasse 32-34 in Wien-Meidling.

fantastic artist from Oakland, CA United States

The events organized there are a 'must visit' - I had attended several openings, as well as a couple of Christmas exhibitions. The generosity toward guests and artists is unsurpassed. On opening evening, there are always very enjoyable musical presentations, and drinks and snacks are served throughout. Attendance is free of charge, and artists exhibit commission-free. This is how Peter Infeld had it set up, and the tradition is continued by his widow.

Der neue Spar am Spitz hat kürzlich eröffnet. Größtenteils bin ich zufrieden mit den Angeboten (man muss sich halt daran gewöhnen bis mann Alles findet). Aber ein Nicht Genügend muss ich bewerten nach der Kassa: da gibt es beim Ausgang nur einen winzig kleinen Verpackungstisch gleich neben einer Personaltüre (die nach Aussen aufgeht), also da kann nur ein Kunde seine Waren einpacken, und wenn man dort steht und warten muss, dann blockiert man die Türe mit dem Einkaufswagerl. So viel Platz, und da konnte den Designern nichts besseres einfallen? Ich kann mir aber leider nicht vorstellen wie dieser Misstand jetzt nachträglich behoben werden könnte, denn gerade beim Ausgang ist es dann sehr eng. .

Absolutely fantastic service - I am so pleased with it I would highly recommend it to anyone! For less than half what I had been quoted by others (and even cheaper than regular mail, for which my items were too large anyway), my sky-luggage was sent just prior to my departure, and arrived a day after my arrival in Europe, right at my door!
