“I am always striving to reflect experienced emotions and impressions of what really bothers. Rueful feelings concerning the world and me. The storyline, the colors contrasts, characters – so simple at the first sight, but they reflect the deepest part of my inner feelings. Every work is a voice, a manifesto, it’s a call for action.

I believe that my practice has the power to influence people and to make them reflect not only on the visual part but also on the idea and concept that might motivate them to change and to be changed.

Feminism, sexism, ecology, any cruelty towards people or animals. Some might say that all these themes have been on everyone’s lips already long time ago. Although why being silent if you’ve got what to say!”
