"I created my first collection of abstracts while I was studying "After working with different techniques and styles, colorful scenery that was surrounding me while living there inspired me in such dimension that the only way to express it was with colors on canvas. After all, there is only so much you can say with words to express certain feelings and my paintings definitely show the passion I felt and still."
