Artist Statement

Art is a very important part of my life, a way to express my views and feelings. It feeds my soul and allows seeing the world through the colors and shapes.

My daily life inspires me by exposing feelings, desires, and the need for aesthetics in everything around me, which in turn I express in my paintings by using the tools I love. I use birds as a means of expression, cranes in particular.

In my opinion, an artist is not just the one creating and exposing ideas. The most important part is to spread and share novel ideas among people, touching their hearts, wakening the strength in people to do good and push away humble feelings for those who are in doubt.

About My Work

I have always admired birds, especially cranes, their interrelationship, eloquent moves and dances that express their love and joy. When you look at cranes it seems like they have a soul close to human, that they feel, love, rejoice and grieve as we do, and know what loyalty, friendship and honour mean.

Each of my paintings conveys an inner melody, tells its own story, sends a message to everyone—it just has to be felt, heard. Then the birds, the ambassadors of my soul and feelings, will find the way to another’s heart and maybe let them feel and hear their own dream, and let it stretch out its wings, revive and fly.
