ABOUT MY ART

The majority of my works depict subjects in metaphysical scenes and states of twisted perception. Themes of tricky human mind and one’s connection with supernatural, as well as literature, cosmology and biology have always been intriguing and inspirational to me. These obsessions combined with personal esoteric experience led me to create surreal images that visualize ideas of illusory world. Each piece I paint tells a fairy-tale, based on a true story, and gives breath to new images and ideas. All together my artworks form a never-ending series of dreams.

 

Her swirling, enigmatic backgrounds sweep you into their wormholes of magical delights, creating entire feelings and realms within this canvas space alone. The characters may dissolve into the abyss any moment and it won’t make any difference because all is illusionary; a dream or a feeling.
