"As I am constructing images of a dreamy-like, out of space reality, my intention is to depict the world in unusual ways. I desire to capture the psychological and mystical elements of life that are often invisible to the eyes. I play with colors and forms. I am inspired by century-old artworks and simultaneously guided by the images of our modern and fast-moving world. The interplay of all elements allows me to paint a world full of possibilities in which any person can think of their own interpretation and create their own story."
