I paint and draw since very young, and sometimes feel I am in a dream. When I close my eyes, many times I have extraordinary visions impossible to paint.
I do not care about what is in fashion but what comes to my mind and try to reproduce it...I like to experiment with different techniques and mediums.
Dream and reality merge frequently. I Need freedom in art.
For relaxing, I love making collage, watercolor, digital images, also ink drawing.
Collage is such a wonderful world! You can discover a hidden universe putting together different pieces of whatever you find.
When I make mixed media large artworks, it is difficult to stop for me. Ideas after ideas keep filling my mind, and I have not enough possibilities to do all I would like.
I was born in Venezuela, from Ukrainian origin. My mother, Halyna Krychevska-Linde, taught me some painting techniques. She was a many-sided artist and artisan. My grandfather, Vasyl H. Krychevsky was a very talented artist, scholar, graphic artist, designer, architect, Teather and Movie set designer, innovator. He died when I was four, but his influence on me has been intense.
