I am fascinated by light and shadows. The process of painting is a very happy time for me. Some ideas come to me before I go to sleep, and others present themselves in my dreams. Going to museums is another favorite inspiration. People who inspire me include artists of impressionism: Korovin, Fechin, Renoir, old masters: Rembrandt, Goya and contemporary abstract expressionism: Jeremy Mann among many others.

I hope that my paintings convey the happiness from which they were created and bring a moment of joy and peace to you.

I am a self taught artist. I started painting ten years ago and instantly fell in love with it. During one year I took classes with a local artist. She helped me to find confidence in myself. In general, I learn well on my own and this skill helped me move forward with painting as well. Light and shadows fascinate me. I love taking walks alone and observing everything around me. This is a very happy time for me. Some ideas come to me before I go to sleep and once or twice I've had a dream about a subject matter. Going to museums is another favorite inspiration. People who inspire me: Korovin, Fechin, Rembrandt, Renoir, Jeremy Mann and many others. I enjoy painting. I am never upset, angry or frustrated if I cannot get a satisfactory result. I see no problem with getting a palette knife and scraping paint off of a canvas if I see that this project is not going to work. As with life itself, I see painting as a learning process and always look forward to something new. I am amazed to see how a brush or palette knife can place paint onto a white canvas to create color, light, and shadows. The features join together and something new emerges before my eyes.
