"I have worked with painting, illustration, stage design and art education. Recently I have gone back to oil painting that has always been my favorite technique. Still life with human and landscape are themes, which express my thoughts and opinions. In my paintings I dovote much attention to shape, line and composition. Often I use different textures, such as paper and fabric to make the surface and drawing of oil paintings richer."
