Artist Thoughts:

"I believe that true artists must be possessed, those who forgot about themselves and decided to give up their lives for the passion of art."

"The world is so unbelievably beautiful, that I can't have a passive attitude, and I can't not paint. I'm happy that I'm able to communicate with many people in a special language that does not require translation. I can speak about the wonder that I see around me, through painting. When I paint, I work not so much with my mind, but with my feelings and emotions, and from the strength of my emotions, the works become full of life, thus stirring the emotions of everyone who sees and experiences them."
