NEW SERIES, 2020
Having lived in a mild climate with 4 seasons changing throughout most of my life and observing nature closely, the fact that the leaves started falling down not days or weeks, but months too early caught my attention and inspired the series of artworks called Early Autumn which theme is loosely tied to climate change. In the artworks you may notice the blue color, which to me personally resembles warm days with the clear, cloudless sky, with the autumn tones of brown and beige, mixing together and overlapping one another.
NEW SERIES, 2020
A natural continuation of a spring VESNA collection, the BLUE VELVET series features artworks on paper that are way darker and bolder. They are uncontrollable bursts of energy, bold strokes of paint, creating a velvet-like appearance that has an ability to soothe both the soul and the eye. BLUE VELVET series is all about soothing, finding acceptance and processing in the midst of a worldwide pandemic, and coming out of it stronger, more determined but calmer at the same time. Because life is changing in the most uncontrollable of ways and sometimes all we can do is to accept the chaos and transform it into our own personal idea of peace of mind.
in the name of Prévert
Series of miniature artworks painted on reclaimed paper from a book by Jacques Prévert. He was well known as a French "poet of love". The book was in possession of my mother for around 35 years. I took the book years and years later to portray that we can indeed recreate the old into something new and beautiful with a bit of hope - whether we are talking about art, love, or life itself. We just have to be bold enough to do the first step and then keep on going.

As an emerging mixed-media visual artist with a focus on abstract expressionism, I use painting not only to express but also to challenge myself. My works are bold and intense representations of emotion on canvas and are greatly influenced by my current environment. Whether it is the season of the year, the forest, the sea, the city that I used to know, or even my current state of mind.
