Statement : 

Born in a family of two artists, I draw and paint since I was half a year old. I capture moments and details which show the fragility of the world. They tell a story and ask the observer to stop and appreciate nature, relationships, and life. More detailed and intricate levels of my work reveal to an unhurried observer, who is bringing it to a whole new level. By exploring details I reveal the whole universe in a small fragment. My art comes from where I am emotionally. I always have a vision in my head, but then in the process of creation beautiful transformations happen.  Associative, subjective and eternally unfinished nature of the art process is what interests me most. I believe that art makes a huge difference in this world and I feel blessed to be part of it.

I Love You To The Moon And Back
Girl And A Cloud
It has been real joy to work on this painting. Inspired by a photo I took 10 years ago of my daughter Liva. Since then I had visualized all kinds of paintings I would do of her.
