In my free creation, I would like to get rid of fantasy. I change shapes and faces, I hide symbols, points, I love surrealism, symbolism, semi-realism, fairy tales, myths. Sometimes I personify human qualities, advantages or habit, another time, for example, Mother Nature into a female figure.
In creation I find peace, joy and satisfaction … when I do not, I feel sad and uncomfortable. Creation I need to live like air, food and love :)

And how do the pictures arise?
I create my pictures with different art techniques, but oilpainting is the most appreciated for my heart.
The pictures you see on this site are made with layer technique, but I use the ala prima technique or a combination of them, plus graphite pencils, crayons, dry brush technique, and sometimes I practice watercolor, tempera and pastel.
