My “Fantasy Structures” are the result of being brought up by my grand-parents and after my grandmother’s death when I was eight years old by grandpa alone. He was a well known Austrian architect and from an early age taught me how to draw and paint and then had me assist in making his architectural dioramas and models for his clients. The love of architecture has never left me and now I express it trough my little houses and scenes as seen here. I have always been fascinated by any form of transportation, from trains to cars, to airplanes and ships and I try to incorporate some of this in my work as well. I only use “found” wood, unwanted articles and everyday items I find in my shop or in the woods. I also have hundreds of pen and ink or pencil drawings which I should like to exhibit at some time but for now I sincerely hope that you enjoy looking at my little houses. All items are hand crafted and for indoor display only.Thank you for visiting The MAC Center for the Arts.
