I always paint at my current inspiration. Most of my work belongs to Abstract Style. Techniques are Watercolor, Mixed Media, Digital Collage and Graphic. My creative work has no premeditation, just a blank canvas as an invitation for continuous meditation. Inspiration is everywhere, and permeates everything. Water, nature, exotic places, sea.
Making art is all about being in a present moment, which leads to calmness, and being in flow, so that is what shows on my pieces. I paint with as little thoughts as possible. I often don’t know what I want to create on the painting. But I’m always plesently surprised with how it looks like at the end.
I like to work with what is fluid. I enjoy observing movement of watercolors on paper as well as to observe the ocean, or to dive. I follow the color overflow and add something. The artwork is created by itself. Works represent expansion. They have no beginning or the end, they build on each other. Every mistake I make while painting is an opportunity to come up with something new, unexpected. Possibility of a new creation opens up. Sometimes I draw some native motifs and symbols from Eastern, African and Native American culture. It is always fun to explore new artistic expression.
