About

I was born in a minor town located at the heart of the Carpathian Mountains, what is today Slovakia. Many of my childhood activities took place in the pine woods surrounding my family home.

There I played hide and seek, collected pine cones, breathlessly dashed after wild rabbits, hedge hogs, red deer and foxes. My vacation days at my grandparent’s farm were equally intriguing. I picked fruit, flowers and formed unforgettable bonds with farm animals.

While on sunny days I chased butterflies and grasshoppers through the meadows, on cold rainy days I cuddled up with books. My fantasy-land was influenced by the tales of Grimm Brothers, Hans Christian Andersen, Jack London, Alexandre Dumas, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, and Jules Verne.

The glory of nature, animals and the imaginary world of books filled me with awe and inspiration. I’d lie on the grass picturing tiny worlds inhabited by various creatures. Excited, I’d rush home to pick up a pencil and draw anything that came to my mind.

At an early age, my artistic ability was encouraged by family and teachers. I was enrolled in private and community art classes. Throughout my school years, I continued to paint and develop my artistic skills.

In the late 1980’s my family immigrated to Canada. After graduating from high school with an art award, I continued my studies at Ontario College of Art and Design, and obtained an OCAD diploma. Following graduation, I worked for couple of Toronto’s leading theatres – Theatre Passe Muraille and Du Maurier Theatre, in the costume and set design department. Feeling the need to pursue higher education, I enrolled in the Visual Studies and Fine Art History BFA program at the University of Toronto. I've made portraying the essence of nature the focus and centre of my life since the time I left school.

Pet Photogrpahy Tips

How to find the perfect picture?

When looking through your pictures of your loved pets, or taking a new picture yourself, there are a few key things to consider:

* Good Lighting – Is your picture light enough to see your pet?

* True eye color – Does the picture show the true eye color of your pet?

* True fur color – Does the picture show the true fur color of your pet?

* Visible fur direction – Can you see the fur in detail?

* Texture detail – Can you see the iris detail of your pets eye, or pebbled texture of the nose?

* A good distance from the camera – is your pet too far away and hard to see?
