Today, in the times of technical progress, mass production and new artificial materials I search for inspiration in the foundation of the Arts - old Russian Orthodox icons, Renaissance and folk cultures.

This is one of my latest paintings that I finished in September 2015. The inspiration behind it was for me to branch out and become a different self within reasonable distances from my mind to my brush. With all the amazing things happening this year with my art, I am always trying to come up with new ways to broadcast my trees and images by using colors that do not quite reflect but at the same time carry.I was quite pleased with the turn out of this piece. This painting is 30"W by 40"H by... [more]

I also love experimenting with layering different materials on a surface and the richness of textures and complexity that results. A lot of my recent work has been in black and white because I feel that some concepts can be more powerfully expressed if the eye and mind are not distracted by color. When I do use color... [more]

It was nearing 10pm.
Their screening was over, and Pink, as she would like to be called, was at the front of the room, standing with her... [more]
