“I personally call my main profession “researcher”, “explorer”. To my mind there is nothing more interesting than exploration of the world, of the people, of myself. This is exactly what any artist does, touching every subject of his or her exploration with his or her eyes, hands, soul.

My father and my grandfather worked in graphics. My maternal great-grandfather was an icon painter. Painting is stronger than me indeed! I often laugh that I cannot do anything else, well, perhaps except for cooking. Someone sees life as something static and unchanging, but for me its way different. Every day the whole streams of sensations are flowing upon me, and I feel a deep necessity to pass them further, since it’s simply impossible to leave them within. As I can I pass them further, also trying to constantly develop myself.

It’s hard for me to admire alone. Both delight and fear I ache to share. I do not inhabit the world with made up creatures and symbols. I feel them with my heart, and with my paintings I’m saying: “Here what it’s like! Just see how delightful it is!”

See, watch, and maybe, you’ll be able to find yourself there too…”
