I am an artist or, more precisely, the Creator lives through me.

For more than 15 years I have been studying classical music, spending hours in perfecting a musical piece. But as things happen in our lives, changes are happening, and we just follow the path the Creator has designed.

As a child I remember spending my free time drawing fantasy illustrations. I dreamed on the white sheet and display my children’s desires and fantasies.

That’s what I’m trying to do now, to create art that has a similar effect on people.

Process

I often wonder which one to first depict when the creative process begins.
Around me, it is always a creative chaos, small paper notes with scribbled ideas have filled my workplace, where I create the little magic that would make people happy.

When I create my mind is off, I just follow the inner impulse in choosing colours, shapes and textures, as if someone is creating through my mind, eyes and senses.

It is a wonderful feeling when you finish the picture and lean back to rest after long work with the computer and see the end of the artwork.

Complete harmony, satisfaction, quiet joy in the soul – a moment of eternity.

Intention

Often, when I walk away with strangers on the street, I see the sadness in their eyes, which often hide and look at their feet. If you look at them, I smile at them, and I often see how a simple smile from a random passerby brings another smile to you.

The smile is the energy of joy, and where there is joy, there is love, and there in the same place, there is gratitude, compassion, kindness, and beauty. What I want to achieve with my life on Earth is to touch every heart, to open people’s souls to that quiet, joyful feeling that lies deep in everyone and which we often forget where it is, hurried in our everyday life and family care, work, pending obligations.

This is the purpose of my art – to bring a smile, and the smile, in turn, can create miracles.

Themes

As I said, ideas come out of me as a fountain, so the themes in my artworks are so different. I like to experiment.

In my portfolio, you can see illustrations made with ink pens, digital collages of flowers, birds, butterflies, animals and musical instruments, fantasy scenes, surrealistic paintings or just floral motifs, modern, clean patterns, and children’s illustrations. The world is full of surprises – so am I.

Hobbies

God how I love to create art! The only other thing that captivates me is fantasy books. I love to read!

Dream

I dream to travel around the world, to feel the spirit of different cultures and people. I dream to share the feeling of quiet joy with every man on this Earth.
