I see the beauty in life and the beauty in colors. I love both.

Color is the essence of my painting. It’s a powerful tool, allows me to express the beauty in human life and the natural world. Though most of my paintings are figurative and objective they are abstracted by bold, inventive colors and simplified by leaving out the details. Colors have a beauty of their own. They give the painting atmosphere and character. I often use pure, flat, distinct, strongly contrasted colors to create a visual impact and to translate my feelings and emotions.

The real world is colorful. To interpret it artistically on a canvas is a thrill.
