My artistic inspiration comes from a blend of my Russian heritage, merged with the culture and vibrancy of my adopted home of South Africa. The splendid poetry and fine art of the early 20th century, a time known as an epoch of Russian cultural decadence, took root within my soul, clambering for expression. It was many years before the conditions were right, and I could reflect the vibrant colors, bright lights and fascinating dynamics of South Africa, to my satisfaction. I do not plan my works in advance - I just put paints to canvas, and play. Colors and shapes begin to guide and inspire, and intuitively I draw ideas from the universe, letting the flow of shade and movement come through my being and untangle light from dark. This is the way I am driven to find myself through artistic meditation, to put it to canvas and show people what I see and feel, perhaps even introducing them to an alternative vision.
