One of my goals in my artistic activity is to contribute to the cultural life of the community where I live. Art is and always will be a part of my life.
The style of my work has changed over the years. I moved away from traditional realistic paintings to contemporary and abstract paintings. I enjoy the freedom in the creativity not dependable on the real image of subjects, blending the reality with my fantasy. Both styles, which I call a free style in painting, allow me to play with colors and forms, to use different materials, to express my feelings. It is a new way of seeing the world.
