About My Art

My art is about my experience of life and about experiencing it with wonder and joy.  It is about finding poetry and magic in places that I visit and in objects which I own or happen to come across.

I aim to capture the emotions and memories that I would want to re-live when the everyday life becomes mundane or stressful, fleeting moments which touch me with their beauty, the views that make me stop and look with awe, and objects that inspire me, awaken memories or make me dream.

I usually paint in oils, using the alla prima, wet-on-wet technique. My paintings are colourful and rich in texture. For me, the tactile nature of oil paints makes the creative process very enjoyable and playful. At the same time, though, it is an extremely focused and almost meditative experience. Painting process allows me to explore my subject; to be for a while with the feeling which was the initial reason for my desire to hold onto it and to choose it for my painting.

Occasionally, to explore other ways of expression or just because I am drawn to the beauty of it, I reach for different media and then I create paintings using acrylic paints, wax, inks, dyes and pencils.

I hope the viewers will respond to my art emotionally and that they perceive a little bit of the same poetry which moved me to create.
