1998 - Discovered watercolour as a means of expression.
Watercolour is a painting technique which offers an infinite scope of possibilities for artistic expression, highly demanding on the part of the artists concentration combined with passion.
The beauty of watercolour painting lies in the white of the paper, the lightness, the movement, the transparency, the vibrant colours.
I paint from nature and I bow before the beauty and the forces of the Nature and the simple, ordinary things around us. I try to catch the spirit of each material and to touch the thing beyond reality.
