Nothing is more painful than being forced into silence. But if we choose to be in silence, it helps us live consciously. It increases our emotional regulation. From my perspective, there are no good or bad emotions, but there are good and bad ways of expressing feelings.
I'm not following any specific artistic movement, but instead, I experiment with creating themes from life. I desire to paint what I see, and I feel, as I see it and feel it, in my way without regard for the taste of the professional collector. There are no rules in art, that is how art is born, and every time I paint, I feel free to express my inside emotions without limitation. To catch inspiration, I open my arms in my imagination, increasing the aerial sensitivity. The overwhelming solitude of those moments turns into pleasure and lets me become one with the art.
In my most recent work, these relations have become more transparent and more intimate. Every piece of art has its complex parts, each similar yet different from the others. But there is still the feeling with which I began-the artwork of one among many. Many variations exist in my work, and there is consistent flexibility and changeability, evidencing the perfection of my imagination.

My art is a form of expression and an extension of my personality. My creative mind never stops, and everything around me is an inspiration for my work, even the most minor and insignificant things in life. I started doing art at a very young age. For me, art becomes a source of search, processing, and ultimately peace with various experiences. Sometimes I draw figures, faces, and things in which I find something profound. I like to capture a moment and put it in a work of art. What I like most about the design is the emotions. I love when I see something shaking in someone's eyes and face, something just below the surface, and I can capture it with my drawing. I want to inspire people with works of art that focus on the resilience, strength, and connection of the human spirit and emotions.
Although family and work commitments prevailed, I continued my passion for art in my spare time. I am an incredibly compassionate person, and in many ways, I put myself wholeheartedly into every work of art. I never focus on specific art styles and themes, as I do not want to be framed in a particular technique and be more faithful to my emotions and imagination. Different media always allow me to express other ideas, and during the research, new areas of interest emerge and lead to my subsequent work. Sometimes I even use themes that will satisfy my obsession with colors and imagination. In a way, I communicate with this elusive sense of absolute joy in my art, and every time I feel happy in my life, I create art with colors and full of fantastic images and objects.
I always find beauty in bad things and try to transfer them to powerful and unique works of art. My work has been constantly rooted in the many personal emotions, moments, and things I have drawn from life for the past fifteen years. Evolution is my primary goal. It's something I demand of myself and my job. In recent years my works have been created spontaneously. At first, I did not realize it, but in the process, looking at them as a whole, I can say that indeed, there is an explosion of imagination. I avoid pre-defining the true meaning of the messages I send through my work and letting the viewer travel through my art. Although there may not always be similarities in subject matter, they are associated with a wealth of imagination and perfectionist detail, and my philosophy is consistent. Each work consists of different concepts, and "Communication" with my audience is what I have in mind when I paint. I never have hidden messages, and I like when viewers express different emotional reactions and perceptions about each of my works. Freedom of thought is a crucial feature of my work. I try to make the viewer perceive the meaning with his perception and way of thinking. The messages for each, however, may be different.
It is a blessing to be able to design and be creative. It gives me a sense of completion, harmony, and relaxation.
