I draw and paint portraits, landscapes, figure and still life. All for the sake of eventually re-working these in my imagination and creating what I call my main work - Magic Realism. My work is about the mystery of everyday life. It is about my life, my personal history, and my family heritage. My aesthetic influences include Expressionism, Dada, Surrealism, and Russian Icons. Many artists inspire me today, among them Leonor Fini, Rene Magritte, Pierre Bonnard, Andy Wyeth, Paula Rego and Katherine Ace.
