I see faces and shadows in marks, cracks, and accidental shapes.
Those shapes and shadows just need a bit of highlighting or outlining to help them to emerge fully.
I am a traditional independent British artist of Baltic-Slavic origins based in West Sussex, UK.

Barthes wrote that The Birth of the Reader must come at the cost of the Death of the Author. I wish to create art that gives the audience freedom of interpretation, without imposing my personality on the work.
From my teenage years, I was fascinated by the works of surrealists and the use of surrealist art techniques.
Each painting has its own vibrations, there is no one fit all. If you feel that this painting speaks to your soul, it can bring a special energy resonating with you.
I consider my paintings to be live beings.
I started to paint when I was little; at the age of 5 – 6, I won some prizes at the international children’s artists competitions and was the youngest student at our local children’s art school.
I was very attached to my art teacher. When she left our town, I stopped painting, I was about 12 years old. I tried to paint again when I was 39 while recovering from an operation and battling post-traumatic stress disorder and depression.

The Silent Works
Silence is so accurate. Mark Rothko
The Mutus Liber, which translates to “Silent Book” in Latin, is a famous alchemical book that was first published in France in the late 17th century. It is a collection of 15 engravings or plates that depict the process of creating the Philosopher’s Stone, a legendary substance said to have the power to transmute base metals into gold, as well as to grant eternal life and other supernatural abilities.
