Thanks so much for taking interest in my art! I do hope you'll find something to warm your heart, if not, feel free to message me, I'll be happy to create a bespoke painting for you.
I always had a creative soul and did a lot of drawing growing up, but it never crossed my mind to pursue art professionally. I was made to believe—as a lot of people are in my opinion—that one must choose a practical, well-earning career path, get a 'real job' and 'make something out of oneself'. Sound familiar?
Well, I followed the sensible path for many years, but it never felt right, there was always something pulling me another way. So I changed universities, careers, even countries, trying to hush that nagging voice, but none of that made any difference. The longer it went on, the more unhappy I was.
I got back to creating at first just to get a break from my usual daily stress, but soon painting took over all of my free time (and my apartment), until finally I decided to take the leap of faith and follow my passion. I am still terrified, no doubt, but I do believe that when one follows their heart, good things happen.
I create abstract art as it gives me absolute freedom of expression and allows me to explore and express my inner-most feelings and thoughts that are often difficult to put into words.
Art is also a form of meditation for me, as it forces me to access a state of flow – a connection to my true self as well as something much bigger than me, that flows and communicates through me and onto the canvas. Each
piece tends to have a unique message, which I give a nod to in the title, though without explaining too much - just nudging the viewer to explore their own thoughts and feelings.
I try to work as unpredictably as I can – from splashing watered-down
paint on the canvas, letting it drip and mix; to using intuitive movements of my hands and body. I strive to create expressive abstraction that is impossible for the thinking mind to grasp, to allow the art to reach deeper into the observer’s feelings and imagination.
My goal is to help others connect with their true self and open their mind to a word behind the everyday. I believe that only through connecting to our true selves we can reach our full potential and create happy and honest lives for us and others.
