about me

Art as a passion

What does painting mean for me

Painting is my nourishment and passion; it supplies me with energy and guides my meditations. At times it is also my inner conflict, sending me out into the unknown. Painting is purely an intuitive way of expressing myself, my energy and my deepest thoughts and emotions. It is never planned or restricted, it is freedom!

...."Sensitivity and delicacy, expressed with vibrant intensity"....


My work is a striking amalgamation of influences and techniques. Each painting is a composite piece, a unified collective formed by tiny dots, brush strokes, covering the different color shades and by combining the seemingly incompatible in the naked expectation of what this surrender brings.

The way these visceral colors and points combine and contrast to create vast swirling bands of dream-like labyrinths, or mesmerizing geometric patterns, that draws you in, surrounding you with my inspiration from the everyday to the profound.

The canvases encapsulate and express the human experience in the same way that man has done for thousands of years. Art communicates it, expresses emotion and individuality and it transcends language.

By taking these traditional elements and expertly melding them with modern techniques and a contemporary sense of self, my genuine aim is to express the creativity that is compelling. Moving on from a background working in glass art, I am focusing entirely on paintings, painstakingly working in acrylic on canvas, using Chinese wands and different sized brushes, from the very smallest, to the largest available . I work intuitively, considering my artwork an intrinsic part of my daily life, so that each piece becomes a compulsion, more then simply a desire, for me painting is an absolute necessity.

As a result, each painting is a reflection of my personality, bright, vibrant and full of boundless energy.

I loved to paint and draw since early childhood and then I got the amazing opportunity to study at a Glass-making Art School in Železný Brod.

"The principle of the emergence and decline of life is the very same one giving birth to and carrying out a work of art."
