One of my early memories as a child, was my father developing pictures in his dark room. I was mesmerized with the images appearing on the white paper - it was a magical moment for me. We sometimes forget to stop and just be in its presence, not past, or future, just now as it is because it will never be the same. Each moment is so unique, it can never be repeated...EVER. Just before it dissappears, just as we look away, before it vanishes...to be able to catch the beauty and the spontaneity of it in the most creative way is the great reward for me. Studied fine-art, design and photography at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and received Bachelor of Art from the Columbia College Chicago. Creating art became like a spiritual journey for me.I work in abstract, since with abstract there is no model to imitate. Feel fascinated by possibility of what one can do by exploring new mediums and techniques and ways of seeing things. Find insperation in shapes as widely different as alphabets, hand writing, cardiograms, fractals, geometric patterns, irregular shapes that can not be represented by classical geometry. Computer allows me to be free to expand my inner creativity beyond the norm and pioneer new ways of self-expression through shape and form exploration. I feel particularly influenced by metaphysical drawings of M.C. Escher, abstract paintings of J. Pollock and Joan Miro. They pushed the boundaries and created something new. Some of my favorites are the designs of Aubrey Beardsley, Erte, G. Barbier, and C.R. Mackintosh, as well as an old Japanese paintings, calligraphy, and the philosophies of Buddhism, Tao, and Zen.
