"My artworks are a combination of my thoughts, dreams, surroundings, people I see, stories I hear, feelings I have inside. Each artwork is a short story about me and a part of my inner world. To make art for me is to record something you can only feel in a visual way that gives you an opportunity to see and touch the feeling. To make it properly I work in different techniques and styles. It depends on the idea and mood. Also, I experiment with materials and sizes."
