Artist Statement

Painting botanical Still Lifes has proven to be the most precise and inspiring way to express my view of the world. It enables me to preserve these moments when I feel that I’ve fallen into the atmosphere of beauty and inner stillness. These simple moments are too valuable to miss, because right there a key is hidden for prolonging and extending the concious neutrality of ongoing life and inevitibility of passing time.
Nature just exists, I add myself as a delighted observer, admirerer of beauty, and that is quite enough for me.
