The purpose of my work is to make beautiful things. Working from nature, I am inspired by its beauty. When I paint simple things, I vitalise them and fill them with sense. Trying to reproduce exactly the light and the mood of the subject, I experiment with composition, tone and colour. I balance composition, so that on lookers can breathe easily. I make contrast convincing, and colours fresh and pure. Feelings and mood play an important role in my paintings, more so than the form. It is not the technical side of art, which interests me; hence I do not experiment with styles or medium. I am simply excited by the process of painting itself. Technical skills together with inspiration are not enough to be a good artist, unless you do not work constantly and estimate your results soberly and strictly. I regard each new work as a serious search. This produces a picture that is not an imitation of reality, but a new reality in itself. Nature is the teacher and it is nature that teaches me to see the subject and gives me immense feeling of love.
