"My painting is purely intuitive, flows out of me naturally and almost effortlessly.
Creative process is based on two stages. First one, when picture takes control, it becomes, leads me. Second stage, when I have to take control, organize and decide what elements of the image are the most important .I gently try to suggest, what should come through as the strongest part of the painting. I am using the strength of the composition and uncompromising colours to create an impact. Ironically, my painting is the opposite of my nature. I like peace and tranquillity.
