~ What inspires you for new creations? ~
What inspires me is life, feelings, music, people that I meet. Fashion and music, nature:)
~ How would you describe your style in paintings? ~
if I would describe my style in my paintings I would say they are very colourful, I love a lot of colour. Mainly because they give people a colour experience. I paint faces, owls, various animals. I like to paint different designs.
~ Do you think a person can become a painter during the whole their life or he should be born talented? ~
I think everyone can paint, you don’t have to be perfect….the painting is in the eye of the beholder.
~ What is the main message you want to deliver with your works? ~
~ Where did you exhibit your works? Did you cooperate with someone interesting? ~
I’ve given away some paintings to friends and businesses donated to the Cancer Society. I also have some of my art works at various exhibitions.
~ Can love influence your creativity? Which way? ~
I am influenced by my mood when I’m painting, today I am happy and love life so I hope it will be reflected in my art. So yes, love, and life influences my paintings :)
