I explore this world through my paintings. And to me, it is a wonderful, magical place. When I paint, I do not feel the passing of time. I am in a state of utter bliss - it is a feeling I can only describe as Nirvana. I require no food, no sleep and very little water. I build a fairytale around myself and through me it becomes reality - both in my work and in my life. I believe that a painting is where the Divine meets the temporal; inspiration and the physical world become one, creating a miracle. I hope that whoever looks at my paintings feels this miracle and feels the positive energy radiating from my work. My style is full of bright colours, expressive eyes, symbols (hearts and angels are often hidden in the patterns of my paintings), animals (I rarely draw humans - animals are usually the protagonists of my work), and patterns. I paint the world as I see it - full of colour, life and magic. My Aqvalerius collection focuses on sea-life. The "Loving" fish has bright colours and large, expressive eyes. The deep, blue background will calm viewers, while the bright colours of the fish will bring joy and inspiration.
