" My aspiration is that my paintings bring harmony, resonance and beauty into people's lives."
" I am a predominantly self-taught artist, born and raised in Slovakia. I have been fortunate to live and work in several countries around the globe. For the last 9 years, Dubai has been my home. My artwork is created through a combination of my intuition and my deep connection to the inspiration of the creation itself. Each painting is filled with multiple layers of paint, building a rich history and story into each piece. Creatively balancing a visual harmony between the earth and the sky. I am influenced by the work of Lee Krasner, Joan Mitchell, Willem de Kooning, Van Gogh and Monet.
To paint, I solely use my hands and fingers in order provide me an intimate connection to my work. With my signature style, I evoke the ever-changing complexion of the landscape with the emotional immediacy as I maintain the meditative freedom and breadth of nature. Vibrantly hued, I select dynamic, contrasting colours to best demonstrate and communicate my emotional to nature. I embellish my expressionist paintings with a spiritual harmony and invite to celebrate the joys of our universe though my work. "
