"...nothing is perfect, is permanent, and nothing is finished. Intuitively, we sense that things are most beautiful when they begin to wither. "

I love wabi-sabi (侘寂) style, popular In Japanese Art.
Modern definitions are more gentle and include the possibility of an artist’s hand — wabi is translated to rustic simplicity, freshness, quiet and understated elegance, and sabi is connected to the serenity that comes with age, including an object’s patina or signs of wear and even repair. Think of rust, the patched eye of a child’s stuffed animal or the coaxed and grafted limb of a hybrid plum.
Characteristics of the wabi-sabi aesthetic include asymmetry, roughness, simplicity, economy, austerity, modesty, intimacy, and appreciation of the ingenuous integrity of natural objects and processes.

In my work, I’m searching for serenity by representing my own inner space. I use classical art forms, but also enjoy playing with new different materials. My art process is intuitive, it's a kind of a conversation I am having with the canvas. The language I'm using is colors, shapes and textures to communicate something beyond that cannot be expressed with words. Painting has become a tool that lets me explain stories and express everything that makes surprises, depressed me, annoyed and all the other emotions that make who I am. I hope, it gives the viewer the opportunity to create their own story, meaning or associations, and makes each piece personal to them. I wish my artworks bring some joy and thoughtfulness, as well.
