Artist Statement

As a child I was looking at classical illustrations with great admiration. The stories have always drawn me into drawings, like a black hole in the solar system. With a very small head of a child, I decided that I would deal with this as an adult. As time went by I did not give up my dream and I persisted.  
I'm always open to new things, experimenting, I like to acquire new knowledge that I can combine in my works. 
My artworks are inspired by the antique art trends, most notably Renaissance, Expressionism, Baroque, Symbolism and Art Noveaou in addition the cartoons and comics. I like to combine old styles with new trends. 
My work in most cases is already preformed in my mind. I always have a lot of ideas for the next image. Occasionally, a random theme is taken from a small thing, really about any little thing. When the face of a person that I first saw in my life,  inspires to a special character that suddenly comes into my mind. This is how the details of the picture are in the minds of my imagination. I've always been a visual type, I can easily figure out a picture of "everything" that inspires me. In that case, I understand why they told me many times that I was "enchanted personality". After all, a spell is any idea that surfacing in the human being. This gives the freedom. 
My characters carry a natural, special beauty. I love to display the facial mimicry that I spice with natural charm in my works. 
Because the grimace is special in every face, which tells playfulness, shyness and honesty about their owners, therefore I like to use my some pictures. 
I also like dreamy childish themes that are both visionary and realistic, facile, more cheerful. Whether it is a fictional fantasy world where anything can happen, we can be anyone and we can go anywhere, because nothing is impossible.
I work in pop surrealistic style. The classic, natural beauty characterizes the characters of my artworks. 

Summer
The nature is art itself. Not only the universe, but the main source of inspiration. The nature is impressive, captivating, with all its elements perfect. Nature affects all artistic trends - be it fine arts, architecture, photography, film or anything else - always brings harmony. Like everyone else, it always fills me with positive energy, which is reflected in my works.
Nature is rich in various colors, shapes and materials, in which we find so many possibilities. It is almost incomprehensible, indescribable and inexplicable, the fact that we exist in it. There is always an amazing feeling about how each element of nature is intertwined.
I attempt to give this feeling back to my pictures, as in this artwork.
In this picture, I focused on the miracle of nature. Here I wanted to draw attention to plants, flowers and the wake of the season following the spring.
A beautiful flowery meadow, or a magnificent flower garden, expresses the perfect harmony of nature. In this picture the beauties dominate, the plants and the human, the classic female beauty with little tiny secessionist sentiment. The nature is eternal beauty.
Candy girl
This idea of the picture has been in my mind for some time. Always fascinated by the delightful look of classic sweets. Be it for the beauty of confectionery or the most desirable products of confectionery factories. Besides their taste, the appearance of sweets / products is also important. After all that is what seizes and enthralls man as an enchanted fairy tale. A taste of sweets brings memories, experiences and enjoyment to one's life. We remember the classic childhood flavors that can be linked to an experienced experience. To say, a small tasting from a tiny memory that we think back with love. These thoughts inspired the background of this image. The op-art effect of the vibrant background captivates the viewer.
The complexity of the image is based on the detailed background and the delightfully charming figure. The portrait depicts an enchanted, almost hypnotizing look of a fairy girl who appears as Willy Wonka or as white rabbit in Wonderland in the dense-bulk sweets world. The portrait's charming personality can be likened to a comic strip character. Her haircut, as well as the candies with her pastel shades, made me kinder. The ponytails can be compared to a kind of sweets.
Fairy
In the picture, a little girl looks out at us from a flower cavalcade. She is playing with the viewer, childishly and looks at us curiously. It is not known whether she is shyly to come out of her flower-hiding place or just she is about to hide.
The flowers symbolize natural charm, innocence, sophistication and classical beauty at the same time as a kind of mystical, enchanted, mysterious locale in the picture.
The glamorous green-eyed girl's gaze is like reading in us, seeing in our souls. With her red hair, she evokes the mysterious, spiritual powers of female figures in ancient tales and legends, whether a fairy or a young nymph from Greek mythology.
The pastel shades create harmony with the portrait, creating a positive mood, like the mysterious wonder, the nature itself.
Ultragirl
The image combines the world of pop art with postmodern, abstract and surreal elements. The focus is on a young girl who "lives" in an enchanted dimension where anything is possible. It's a world where a cavalcade of colors and retro patterns blend in with the colorful sky. A copy of liberation, rebirth and spiritual projection radiating positive energy is presented to the viewer.
She looks at us confidently, like a superhero who has returned forcefully from the captivity of long gray, conveying the positive message that we, like her, can create a happy, liberated, colorful world.
Spring
The picture is a dream-like scene that brings to mind the old illustrations of a fairy tale. The background is at least as accentual as the figure in the middle of the picture. The splendid beauty of spring flowers evokes the Baroque flower stills, that inspired this picture. It is an expression of my admiration for one of the finest creatures in nature, the diversity, the uniqueness, the unique beauty, the dazzling set of vivid colors, subtle shapes that create these eternal wonders. Nature has a great influence on me, a source of eternal inspiration, just like for the artists of the old ages. It is soothing and dazzling at the same time with her complexity. Nature is the eternal muse.
The girl is an allegorical figure. His half-hidden laughter makes him truly playful, sincere and childish. In my opinion, the facial mimics make the individual unique, a small insight into the inner world, which thus becomes a natural charm. The shade of turquoise hair also refers to flowers and plants, bringing the character closer to his surroundings. Her dress evokes the Renaissance womens costumes, because as the Renaissance means the rebirth, the flowers in the picture represent the spring, the rebirth of nature/life.
