  • Biography

    I am a professional artist, my whole life, since childhood, is connected with the contemplation and creation of beauty. Travelling a lot around the world, I observe and admire the works of the God, the harmony he created in nature. By means of painting, with the help of paints, I try to convey all this in my paintings and share the received emotions with my viewers. On my return from the distant places, the sketches done  from nature inspire me to work in the studio, while the elusive image of what I saw remains in my memory, helping to reflect the essence of the impressions I experienced. I believe that as often as possible, the artist needs to leave the boundaries of the familiar landscape, and discover unknown spaces, find new sources of emotions that refresh the senses, enrich the painting. Nature is multi-faceted, changeable, elusive, exists according to its own laws and it is impossible to simply take and copy it. It plays with you, the sun's glare, the rustle of leaves, the clouds that are always an enigma.

    And touching the canvas with a brush, also playfully, without fear, I try to convey the awe that will surround us. Liberating myself, indulging as it were in distillations or with a step ahead, brushstroke by brushstroke transforming the space of a blank canvas, I open a window into three-dimensionality. It is so fascinating that minutes, hours, time itself, become a moment of creation. You find yourself, after some time, in the same place already at the finished work and realize that you were in another dimension! This is a sort of  happiness!
