Artist Statement: My paintings reflect the interplay of life in urban centers, connection and disconnection, interior and exterior, organic and inorganic and movement and stillness.
As life increasingly becomes digitized and disconnected, I encourage viewers to connect and consider. By capturing the dynamic moments where unlikely visual and compositionally rich scenes come together, they're preserved for contemplation and reflection.
The oil paintings are based on my photography and are constructed freehand. Layers of paint increasingly create a luminous, lifelike quality, while leaving space for the viewer's imagination.
Artist's Statement: Search for beauty in surrounding us complicated and at times hostile world and sharing it with others was always my credo, both in art and music.

Artist Statement: My artwork focuses on capturing the infinite movements of vital energy. Each painting is a unique experiment attempting to understand the real beauty of the world filled with depth, emotion, and movements associated with positive energy paying close attention to details.
I've developed a unique style based on principals of traditional European art mixed with Eastern philosophies that explain the feeling of positive energy.
Artist Statement: I was always fascinated by the ability of art to capture an emotion, a thought or a feeling in ways more powerful than can be expressed by words. Throughout my life I strived to achieve this ability and to continuously seek new ways of expression and form. Being self-taught eventually proved to be advantageous to my development as an artist.
Despite all the technical and stylistic changes over time I always remain true to my original goal of capturing an emotion or a thought in my work.
I strive to make a viewer interact with my pieces on a level of raw emotions in a setting of unique visual experience often starting a silent dialogue between us.

Is it the sense of connection to, yet distance from our surroundings, which she try to maintain in her paintings. The pictures she connects to most usually have a mixture of two realities; which is in the artist through previous experiences, and the present life.
