My project for this project  is inspired by Anais Nin's thoughts “We don’t see things as they are, we see them as we are” In my project I would like to articulate something we’ve felt, and we connect to that thing in a way where words aren’t necessary. It’s a feeling that’s hard to describe but makes us feel less alone in a way—that someone else understands us and gives a voice to this thing inside us. Subject of my paintings might be a state of mind rather than representing reality. I keep on using colour to create an illusion of mental space on a canvas.

And color is one of their most powerful tools of expression. Maybe you see nothing but the pure color but the most important and interesting part is where the color will take you. Color is a power which directly influences the soul. I would like to lead the viewer in his own blue matter that shows him something that nobody else would see or transport him somewhere only he knows. And here viewer has a freedom of interpretation that makes him a co-artist, co-creator and a part of our all inner landscapes that is a part of the world's landscape.
