ABOUT ME

I am a professional interior designer. This is a large part of my work, which I have been doing for a long time and professionally. I strive to create an interior in which it will be as comfortable as possible for its inhabitants, which will inspire and inspire residents to new achievements. Thus it turns out "portrait of the owner", created in collaboration with its owners. And when I stay alone with myself, there is a great desire to create my own “portrait”, a feeling of my own world, through photography, painting, watercolor and many natural materials and experiments. A camera is always with me - it is a hobby that brings a lot of joy and pleasure. From my travels, I bring a lot of impressions, photographs and natural material: shells, tree branches and bark, leaves, flowers and much more. I like to experiment with different materials and textures, combine them in unexpected combinations. And the most pleasant thing to work with natural materials, which each have their own energy. I especially love to experiment when something new is spontaneously born, completely unexpected, but recognizable and very close to you. The process of creating my paintings is a rest for me. I am inspired by nature, the sea, flowers, sky, clouds. I love to look at nature. In my pictures, I again experience these emotions. I really like the experiments. When I paint in watercolor, I love the effects of flowing water. When I experiment with plants, I like to find new combinations and textures. You never know what will happen at the end! And it is beautiful!
