Over the years he has 56 personal exhibitions in Slovenia and abroad. He participate in several international painting workshops in Danmark, Poland, Romunia, Bosnia, Austria and Slovenia.
Most of his Paintings are in Oil, acrylic and watercolour mediums.
Painting in pure watercolour medium he uses a painstaking multi glazing technique, with sometimes up to 20 layers of transparent paint, each in turn delicately modulating the colours beneath. There is no white paint used at all in any of his works preferring instead to preserve areas of the natural paper, his paintings can take many weeks in proces.
A recurring theme in his work is the reclamation by nature of that which man has created and abandoned, finding renewed life between object and environment.
