Years ago, as a teenager, I remember that I was fascinated by colours around me and dreamed about having an opportunity and freedom to paint.

I was born in Slovakia in the very friendly town called Kosice. At the age of 18, due to the Russian invasion in my country, my life led me on a dramatic journey that I could have never imagined. It has taken me to many corners of the world and finally I have reached what I feel is my ultimate destination, the most beautiful part of the world – British Columbia – and now Predator Ridge . While I had no time to pursue what I know now is my true passion, I have always appreciated the natural beauty around me. I have also drawn inspiration from many great artists over the years.

A few years back the opportunity presented itself and it brought art back into my life. I started with water colours and then I discovered water soluble oil, which is an eco/friendly alternative. I love them both. My desire to paint flowers, winter scenes, sunsets, children, landscapes, urban scenes, etc. comes from my passion for colours.

Besides my family which always comes first, my main interests include yoga, golf, skiing and biking.

I am grateful and feel very blessed at this stage in my life that I am able to do all these things. I am now pursuing my dream and sharing my artwork with you.

Art completes my life.
