Art is part of my life since my early childhood. At age of 7 I started to study piano and ever since music is integral part of my painting. My source of inspiration comes from events which I experience, or perhaps a place I have been to, or sometimes someone I meet. It is all a reflection of my personal response towards that which uniquely touches my heart and soul. It is the most exciting feeling when I can share my emotions and deepest feelings with others through my art, not with words, but by using colors and forms which represent how I feel.
There is so much darkness and sorrow in this world.
In the studio, color and light become a meditation for me. I hope that my paintings and jewelry can offer the same to others: a moment of transcendence, a place of light, beauty, and peace.
I currently live and paint in
