Welcome to my Online Art & Design Studio.

I would call myself an Australian Colourist, the 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'.

I like to explore a 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.

Black is my favourite colour too. It’s the colour, that I have been always admiring for its honesty, minimalism and simplicity. Being a true lover of bright colours, I felt at some point, that I had go back to the beginning. My point of The Beginning in Art is the symbolic Black Square of Malevich. Quiet and relaxing, when they are created on a smaller scale and concealed in frames, black and white paintings can be very powerful and expressive as large artworks.

I enjoy experimenting with different colour schemes, painting media, techniques and styles trying to create something original and exiting.

That lies beneath the Southern Cross...
