My work is a result of continuos research and personal experiences. I abstractly combine materials, surfaces, colors and patterns. In each new work I continue my search for maximum compositional effect. Using objects of everyday life, without disturbing their separate identities, I rearrange and place them in a new context, altering their meaning and making them part of a concept.
