Artist’s statement

           I work quickly and emotionally; usually finding right place, light, and mood takes much longer than painting itself.

          North American nature, its unique unspoiled magic is my constant source of inspiration. The ancient way – feeling your way through nature: shapes of trees           and rocks, shadows and lights - gives an excellent opportunity to express your soul. One day and place it’s cheerful, another - miserable and angry, but is             always glorious.
