About my work

My subject matter is a human in melancholic, thinking state. Using the tradional technique of oil painting I portray people in a neutral, relaxed poses, often in a larger context – interior that corresponds with the character or items/belongings that could describe the person.

I like painting from life. In the world of constant rush, instant messaging and stress I cherish the time I can spend with my sitter, allowing them to have a moment of calm and self-relfection.

Inspired by 19th century Russian and Polish art I intend my paintings to be expressive, have a strong character and deep psychology.
