For me art is a refuge, life, sense of life, my view of the world, of what surrounds me, people I meet,raindrops, full moon, autumn leaves, a grain of sounds, rushing down a river. Art is a freedom. Paiting is in my life since I can remember. It is an integral part of my everyday life. Like the art in the broadest sense of the word - writing, dance,theater. I belong to those people who "have to" create... So I do it!
