My interest

Since my school years, I enjoyed watching the colorfulness of the surroundings, the effects of lights and shadows, color combinations and compositions ... Gradually I tried to transfer these visual impressions "on paper". First, using pencils, then crayons and then, later I started to try other art techniques - watercolors, tempera paints, pastels...

It was a years-long phase of searching, observing, thinking and critical evaluation ... I was always looking for ways and means how to “paint” this "play of colors and lights" around me as best as possible.

Until I got to the oil paints. And here I am settled by then. With their potential - colorfulness, spreading rate, flexibility, luminosity ... - I enjoy many years to work out my inspirations and ideas just by oil painting technique. Only in some cases, I am more “toning” them by acrylic paints.

My inspiration

I am finding my inspiration mostly in a treasury of nature.

I am charmed with magic and always changing sceneries of the sun (sun-rise or sun-set, its golden rays..), the clouds, rich natural color of the particular seasons, the magic of flowers, colorfulness of the butterflies, power and mystery of animals, mirroring of the water level, a fresh palette of the blue sky...

My intention

I would like to bring this deep magic of the nature and its variety into my paintings too. So, the paintings would show the softness and smell of flowers, wild energy and grace of horses, scarcely audible beating of butterfly wings, a warm breeze of summer evening, quiet relaxation in the glow of sun-set ...
