"Nature stimulates my recognition in painting. By nature, I choose a network of colors, sounds, light and structure, space. I associate real and abstract references in realistic-abstract paintings with a human being entangled in them. Painting is my energy, my thoughts, gestures, traces.”

"In painting, references to nature are important to me. By nature, I choose a network of images, sounds, light and space and structure. My paintings are based on strong colours, dynamic lines, layered or flat splashes of colour, rough structure and modified consistency of acrylic and/or oil paint. My art (painting and performance) is a meeting (artists and recipients, man and man), creation, improvisation and dialogue, which subconsciously activates in the audience individual and common senses, emotion and energy. My painting invites viewers to open up to the experience of nature and art."
