  “…I work in all spheres of fine art, which helps me to always see the things I do from a different angle and in a new way.

  My life has always been and I believe it will always be painting. Every moment in which I create fills me with happiness, brings me joy and strengthens my belief that this is my calling; the thing i have to do.

  I am excited about the person, about his conditions. I try to look into his soul. I depict people not as they appear, but as they would be in an ideal world – the world in which our dreams live. “
