"In everyday life, the painting comes to me as a need for meditation to get away from the weight of thoughts that roar. I see it as a naive game, as a world of fairy tales, where I play with images and colours to satisfy the child inside me.
There is an expression that inspires me endlessly, by Milan Kundere who says: "When people escape to the kingdom of fairy tales, they happen to be filled with nobility, compassion, poetry. In the realm of everyday life, they are unfortunately occupied by attention, distrust, and doubts.”
