''Mostly focused on portraits and nudes, I am seeking inspiration in friends and family. In latest series I'm exploring women's strenght, intuition, bond with themselves. Muses are seen as shamans, priests, witches...everything what is returning to woman's true nature. Sixth sense. Woman wolf. Bones represent the foundation of self, truth, symbolize the indestructable life. I am trying to paint my oil paintings as delicate, romantic but in the same time strong. They are showing complexity of human nature and caracter. They are a reminder of the power of feminine energies. We all have a bit of both Venus and Mars in us.''
