I was born in April 1964 in Frankfurt, Germany. There I spend most of my time before I went to Jordan in 1979. In 1980 I started my career in the hotel business where I stayed until 2010.I started to paint very early but it was not more than a hobby until 2003. Then the idea of dedicating my time to my true passion was planted.In 2004 I created my own website and with that event the name ArtisDavis was born.I developed what is in my opinion a unique style of painting where I use predominantly one color and apply different shades to get the desired effects. The material I use is acrylic paint on stretched canvas. On occasion a metal color is applied to the painting for added effects. My inspiration comes from what surrounds me; what I see, what I hear. And these thoughts are translated to the canvas.I did not receive any formal training and I firmly believe that painting is a gift and can not be taught. But I do believe that some skills may be taught but certainly not the gift.Up to now, I was always doing some work for friends. But I do aspire to be sharing my work with everybody.
