I am an oil, watercolor and acrylic painter passionate about the beauty of nature and the positive, invigorating effect it has on people and how it makes us feel happy and relaxed. I believe that every season has its own charm, every landscape moves our hearts, and every animal touches our souls and brings smiles on our faces. I try to translate these beliefs in my art.
I travel abroad regularly to explore new things, get inspiration and ideas, and to expand my knowledge. I often visit Europe and paint the beautiful ‘soulscapes’ of Italy, Ireland and Switzerland, and learn unique painting techniques and art philosophy approaches during my trips to Asia. What’s particularly fascinating about Asia is how Taoism, Buddhism and Confucianism influences the worldview of people, and how they perceive nature and animals, and every trip to Vietnam, Japan, Cambodia, Laos, Thailand, Myanmar, Singapore and other Asian countries profoundly questions my perception of these as an artist and as a human being. In the US, on the other hand, national parks and visits to other states often provide inspiration for painting animal portraits, the ‘adoranis’.
My artistic interests are ever evolving and shifting. You probably know the feeling, when you dip into one thing – let’s say you want to find out more about a new art movement you came across at a recent exhibition – and in the process of exploring it you discover a wonderful multitude of other hyper interesting things. And a new journey begins. I am very lucky to be based in New York as this is the city of opportunities, where inspiration visits you everyone – there are so many fantastic exhibitions, museums, galleries, quirky places, events and mazes of new people and ideas here, that it is impossible not to feel excited and energised by the happenings in New York.
The wonderful journey of art is never finished, and I discover new things every day. I hope that you are sharing my passion for art and that you will enjoy exploring my website.
