"I've been painting oil for 12 years. I am inspired by nature, its beauty, which in any manifestation is perfection. I love color, for me the world is color. Mixing flowers, creating new shades for me is the same act of creativity as writing paintings. I like to find out how the viewer feels, looking at the picture of what experience he lives.
I think that my creative search is "slipping beauty." In each picture, the whole spectrum of my feelings is stored, I cannot draw something that I am not attracted to. I like to work on details, my painting is multi-layered. But I also feel inspired when I write quick sketches in broad strokes. Now a new theme in my work has become the inconceivable expression of images, the so-called abstraction. I am looking for ways to realize the idea using only color and stain, without tying the image to the shape of the subject, investigating the effect of color on the perception of the viewer."
