“The main theme of my paintings is protection of the human soul, twists of spiritual searches, discoveries of experiences, harmony of nature and man. The inner and outer Light is the basic leitmotif – both as a symbol of the Divine everywhere principle, and as an element of nature. In order to express it, I use different styles in my paintings – mystical realism, soft impressionism, decorative, abstraction, gentle surrealism. Also it is important for me coloristic painting.
My creations are about how we all need that place, Paradise, where we can get away from daytime work and information overload, rest, calm down, look at ourselves and the surrounding and ongoing phenomena from a distance, rethink the relationship with events and people important to us. Stay calm in the heart with our soul and mind. And then dive into the flow of life, live, create, change refreshed.”
