"When creating paintings, what matters most to me is being genuine, not hiding anything from the viewer and giving complete freedom to my imagination. Paintings truly captivate and energize when the artist pours their inner strength into them.
I love working with large patches of color, blending shades of blue and turquoise with warm, sun-kissed hues. My inspiration often comes from lakes and rivers — spending time with my son by the water is my favorite pastime. To convey my sense of fullness in these moments, seeing myself reflected and extended in my child, I paint large strokes, creating the illusion of a mirrored surface on the canvas. It's as if the painting has its own reflection, doubling the vibrant, rich colors.
Another direction of my work is graphic abstractions, executed monochromatically with delicate, graphic lines. For me, this is a series about the resilience and fragility of each of us. It was born out of my internal transformation associated with recent events."
