Highlands Ranch, CO
Welcome to my magical world!
''Life is like a canvas.. it begins blank and every day is like another brush stroke. Make your life a masterpiece''!
I am a self taught artist and I hope you will enjoy my paintings as much as I enjoyed to create them. 2013 was the year when I started to realize that it was my time to do what I had always wanted to do, painting, but didn't allow myself to pursue. I've bought my first acrylics set and since then I never stopped.
I've been chosen ''Artist of the Month'' by Artist Daily in August 2014 and one of the best 10 artists of the month in August 2015 by curators from Artfinder.
Most of my artworks are bold and colorful and I like to flow the composition with light and mood. I'm constantly overwhelmed by the simple beauty and uniqueness of everyday life and I really want my paintings to create an emotional impact, inviting people into my optimistic world, far away from everyday worries.. I enjoy to work with watercolors, oils, pastels but my favorite medium is acrylics, I love its versatility...
I have to admit that sometimes it’s hard to be creative, there are so many talented artists out there with their beautiful and inspiring works but then I am reminded that the only way to stand out from the crowds, to be unique, is to tell a story, a painted story that I only can tell..
Although you can find expressionist, semi-abstract or even abstract artworks in my portfolio my heart goes to the impressionism. So proud to be part of this amazing project initiated by the great painter and teacher Richard Robinson.

I am inspired by the old masters as Monet, Sargent,Sorolla,Nicolae Grigorescu, as well by the contemporary artists as Richard Robinson, Richard Smith, Heather Arenas, Robert Lemler, Gabor Svagrik, Bill Inman, Qiang Huang and the list goes on..
I have been fortunate to have my paintings find their way into private collections around the world and I am truly happy to see how much I accomplished in just a short period of time..
I truly love this wonderful journey, my painting journey, and I kindly invite you to join me in this lovely adventure.
