I like to make my own "philosophying” which means that I like to ask myself with universal questions about life and everything that touches in life. What makes me – this unique person – myself? What is true happiness? What is real freedom? So I think about my art, and paintings very personal, and my own experiences, thoughts and feelings are always starting point to my works. Then I develop it into something more general, for you. I want you to see in my works something personal for you, not only my story but a reflection of your story too. I believe in people, that everyone has thoughts about important things in life. About beauty, being honest, about inner power, and justice. And I am sure that it is exactly what makes us who we really are. This is why they are so important, and why I paint them. I am most interested in the inner strength that we sometimes feel in ourselves. When confronted with opponents, we know that physical force is important, but also cunning and thinking. In my opinion, there is something else – inner strength – a determination that will dominate everything and could win with both, physical force and mind. This fascinates me in people.

Each of my paintings is a separate project with a specific subject. Recently, short texts have become an integral part of the work – my own poetry – about what moved me, what inspired the project.

“I take Inspiration from what I see around me, but my personal thoughts are only the starting point and inspiration for the research on the man and his condition.”
