Biography

I live, work, paint in Bratislava. I started painting as a child. I attended art school and devoted myself to various techniques. During high school, I painted the whole lesson, for hours and planned to study art or architecture.

Unfortunately, this was not possible at that time. However, art and painting found me again. I started painting intensively in 2012 and since then, even though I work, painting and creative work fills all my free time.

In 2017, I had my first author's exhibition at the ICT ISTROCONTI Gallery in the center of Bratislava, and since then I have been offering exhibitions either again in Bratislava, in neighboring Austria, and currently I have an author's exhibition in Prague at Galerie pod Palmovkou.

I am currently participating in various projects and competitions, my painting Water Lily in Motion was awarded in 2019 as a semi-finalist within the ARTBOX PROJECT in Zurich .As a part of this project, my paintings were also presented in digital form in Miami or Madrid.

In 2021 I was chosen to be an artist in residency at the prestigious Chateau Orquevaux in Champagne Ardenne, France.

Statement

I am attracted to painting. When I paint I feel happy, I'm in another world. I paint mostly something that infuriated, enchanted, and inspired me. Scenes in nature, trees, flowers, water, reflections, gardens, fields, but when I think about it, which is the link - it's a combination of colors, shapes, groupings, it's light and its reflections, it's the smell and the flowing air ... it's architecture, perspective ... It's very sensitive. It just stays in my head and I have an urgent need to paint it. I was very hardworking and unstoppable then.

On the other hand, even though I use oil paints as a priority, I try to find new means of expression, materials and possibilities to achieve the visuals I have in my head. How to release barriers. Even though it is still between reality and abstract, I do not determine it - the painting guides me and I let myself be guided intuitively.

I like rougher brushstrokes, I often use different types of painting knives, but also add pastel or other media. My painting is permanently in evolution.

I don't know where it will move me, painting is a great adventure for me. It's a never ending story
