I would call myself a Contemporary Colourist, an artist who likes to paint with powerful strong colours. I don’t see the world through dark tinted sunglasses. I would rather exaggerate a colour, than to imitate greyed muted colour and use the colour that works, than the colour that’s ‘really there'.


My works explore communication between bold, vibrant, energetic bright colours and human emotions. I believe that our conversation with colours works both ways. They influence our feelings and, the other way around, our mood or personality dictates what colours we dislike, love or choose.


My paintings are neither too traditional nor too abstract. I fill nearly realistic shapes with emotions of bright pure colours and can utilize elements of different styles to add an interest and contemporary twist to a painting to create something original and exiting.



A floral still life painting is an encrypted message in a vase. But can anyone understand this sweet, charming, romantic and elegant language and read beautiful multi-petal pages of stories about our feelings and emotions, past and future, life and love?
