Artist’s Statement

I am fond of the courageous and surprising combination of various materials and techniques in contemporary visual arts.
In my own work, I am happy to move from one technique to another according to the requirements of work.
My primary techniques are oil and acrylic painting, collage, mixed media, carborundum, collagraphy and installations.
I have an interest in the invisible reality, the existence of psychic and spiritual world. I work instinctively. My own inner vision and emotion determine the choise of a theme and its artistic realisation.
