Announcement    🇺🇦 I'm a Ukrainian artist, based in Slovenia.
These days during the Russian invasion of Ukraine all Ukrainian people are living in a terrible nightmare. Being in Slovenia I have a peaceful sky over my head, though my family, friends, and country are suffering. Some of my relatives and friends have lost their homes, some of them are hiding from bombs in bomb shelters without basic facilities, some became refugees leaving Ukraine only with documents or even without them. Some of them cannot be evacuated because even the Red Cross doesn't guarantee their safety during the road. I do all I can on my side and all I pray about is peace in my country. I'm infinitely grateful to all people who are helping Ukraine. If you want to support my family directly, you can buy one of my original paintings or giclee prints which are available for all paintings. Your support means a lot to me during the war. Glory to Ukraine 🇺🇦

My work as an artist is egoistic. I paint for self-studying and self-identification.
It is a way of talking to myself so as not to arouse suspicion.
What colors of the strokes does life paint on my canvas? What am I worrying about today? Am I being discriminated against? Or maybe I'm discriminating against someone?
If I don't feel inequality, does it mean that there is no inequality? What is feminism? Do I want to speak out about the role of women? How to do this effectively? How do I say so that I can be heard?
I write lyrics. When I want to speak louder, I start to paint a new portrait that becomes manifest. Then I gather paintings in the collection that becomes a temporary conclusion about some problem I am researching now.
I agree and argue with myself again. And with new conclusions, I get to work again.

Artist's Statement

Woman’s portrait is the most affecting and speaking topic for me. Though the passion for exploring the feminine theme and collecting stories of successful and empowered women appeared much earlier than I was interested in painting. I was reflecting on the role of a woman from the first conscious years all my life. I see a lot of women who are underestimated, who play not their role. Withal I believe in the endless power of women and in our common strength and influence, brightness, and resoluteness.

I seek to empower other women not only with strokes and colors but also with the names of the paintings and words I attach to every painting: “Antifragile”, “Flow”, “Empowered”, “It’s so easy to enjoy”, “Unwavering”, etc.

I have always liked to paint large and colorful portraits. Pure colors for me are the best materials to express pure states. All my life I see relationships between people or people’s states as colors. If I cannot describe something just with words I would definitely describe it with colors or with both.

Large canvases became a perfect space to evoke all that I explored and reflected to enlarge it and paint it for others to see. Oil paints have also become the first love of painting for me. Once I tried using them I felt their endless plasticity, a plethora of attempts that they give to an artist, the ability to reincarnate, playing a role as oils or watercolors, and, finally its grandeur worthy of museums, which seems impossible to achieve.
