I love painting! I work with oils or mixed media in realistic manner or more loose post-impressionistic approach, depending on the idea I've had when I start a new work.
I enjoy painting still life, I see a lot of potential in still life, from experimenting with the attractive colour combinations to trying to 'tell a story' by an assembly of still (or not always so still) life objects.
My passion for nature and my former training in Botany find their reflection in my paintings of flowers. Here, I give it a full freedom, applying richness of colours and creating a mixture of textures, by adding impasto touches and hand-made silk flowers to my flowers fields.
