 "I love to paint and draw from my childhood. There are so many interesting things in our world. So many shapes, colours, characters and situations. Each one has its meaning I try to discover in drawing. Cormorants on a ­floating tree branch, sea lapping under the moon, children play... All is in harmony.  
I consider art as a chance to be honest and devoted disciple of Nature. I seek a melody on a canvas that thaws human heart.”
