Valta. Curicculum Vitae

Born in 1972. Currently reside and work on the Dutch island of Ameland.

Although I am self-taught, I have been honing my skills in drawing and painting since my teenage years. I have a deep admiration for the classical school of art and am particularly drawn to realist painters who are masters at capturing light. As a tribute to them, my own style reflects their influence. I primarily create figurative fine art, focusing on still lifes, interiors, and landscapes. One of my favorite subjects to paint are human hands, as I find them fascinating. Each of my paintings has a unique story, which I often share on my blog.
