Creating art is like an adventurous journey with many obstacles and challenges but also a chance to experience the most unexpected, beautiful and spiritually enriching places in this universe.
I use water color, pastels, color pencils, tempera and ink pencils on paper and I often like to combine and mix them.
I'm in search of perfect color, shape and design combination. My paintings reflect places I visited and stories and dreams of my life. And I sometimes just lets the colors and shapes play on their own....
I grew up behind the "Iron Curtain" in Brno, the second largest town of Czechoslovakia (now Czech Republic). Everybody in my family did something creative - drawing, painting, theater, film and playing musical instrument. So I quickly joined in. My love for colors and fantasy paintings and drawings came as an escape from reality around me which felt like a thick grey blanket hanging over me in my teenage years. Years passed and history brought huge changes into my world. I got my degree in teaching English language and literature, I worked and traveled but i never lost the need to draw and paint. I developed love for taking photographs and they often served as a base for my pictures from my travels. Now later in life I find myself on the other side of the world in California with even bigger need to bring my fantasies and dreams to life and approach the world around me with my own creative point of view.
