I believe that my energy lives in the tool I use to paint. It is her that is poured onto the canvas and paper. Thanks to it, spark after spark of thoughts jump into the picture. That is why, when the sun glides on my hands, the color of the sky touches my face, and transience is the power – I catch and capture the emotions that arise during the rapture. I use painting for narrative. I reject impersonal representations, which in practice means that abstraction can be found with me only as a background.
