My paintings are an expression of the dialogue, which takes place between the object I paint and myself. For this reason, I chose to paint portraits, which allow me to express this dialogue and the emotions I am feeling.
My portraits express different feelings – happiness, sadness, anger and they are about acceptance of all human emotions and finding a balanced and positive outlook on life. They mostly symbolise the transformation and mix of emotions within myself and so they are very personal in that way. There is a direct link between my paintings and my life journey.
After over 10 years of doing different jobs, from shop assistant to data administrator for big multinational companies, the need for creativity took over anxiousness. I decided to step out of my comfort zone as I felt a great need to paint. As a result I have been working as a full time artist for over 5 years. This decision led to significant changes both in terms of my private life and in terms of how my artwork developed and moved forward. With time, I have noticed my paintings, especially the later ones, have become lighter in form and colours but have also stayed bold and courageous in their overall style.
From time to time, I return to the darker and more intense tones. As with colours and style, the titles of my artworks correspond closely to the emotion I would like to portray to the viewer.
My work is strongly influenced by things which inspire me in my everyday life – nature, beauty fashion and interior design
