Artist’s statement -
What I paint is what and who I am, my art is a reflection of my spiritual being.
What you see on my canvas is a result of more than fifteen years of development, but not only technically, there is also spiritual growth involved which drastically changed my paintings.
I would describe my art as a transfer of my feelings and emotions in a specific moment (inspiration) onto the surface of the canvas. Strong emotional moments are very important in this act of creation. They may be induced by music or any other circumstances such as joy, love, anger or worry. As they become stronger my artwork will become more creative.
For example several years ago when my aunt (who was very dear and an important person to me) died, only one need in that moment did I have - to paint! All my emotions were transferred at such a difficult time onto one piece of canvas.
