Throughout my life as an artist I have been searching for my uniqueness, my own voice, my own style and expression. I went through 12 years of classical art training which gave me all the tools to be able to express anything that crosses my imagination. I am very grateful to all the classic masters for this.
As a young artist, I was influenced by the German expressionist
of the 20th century
, because it had the tragic notes that related so close to my experience of living behind the Iron Curtain. I created a large body of work under this influence and it was all snatched by collectors in Europe. Since I came to the USA, I made my own discovery of the New World of Happiness and started developing my own style to fit this new emotional state. I feel I have succeeded and I am at a stage of my career as an artist when I want to think that I am the influencer.
