About me

Artist statement     

         A good painting should capture your attention for a long time and for me a good painting is that one that express movement, sends you visual messages and that fills your mind with excitment and that wow.

The beauty of spontaneous lines, inspiration from Orthodox culture, symbolism and ornaments represent the philosophy of my work.

I had many commissions to paint Orthodox churches and this developed my skills for a fast painting, expressive figures, decorativism and self confidence in painting huge areas of empty walls.
