I am mostly a self taught artist and a professional graphic designer. Recently I was certified in fine arts and advanced painting from Emily Carr, University of art + design, Vancouver.
I enjoy working in different medias and I'm always on the look for the next creative possibility to express myself or simply to have fun with.

I'm sure you have noticed how inactive I have been for quite a while... work has been taking a lot of my time, but I am finally at a place where art is in fact my full time job, and words can not describe how happy and proud I am to have achieved it!
My TooMuchColor project proved to be an amazing source of income. I sell a lot of small colorful figurative paintings and constantly keep getting a bunch of fun commission work.
My abstract work on the other hand, took the back sit for the last 2 years, but I am trying to bring it back now. It feels so refreshing to have this blank piece of paper in front of me and just dive in without knowing how it will turn out.
Moving from abstract to figurative wasn't really hard for me, because I still stayed true to my abstract like style and my beloved overdose of colors, but in the process of it all... I finally started paying attention to how beautiful our world is, and I feel excited about going outside with my camera, hunting for photos that could work as a reference for a painting.
I kind of regret that I decided to split my abstract and figurative work here in Deviantart, because I simply do not have enough time to be even remotely active on both accounts. I "merged" both of my art facebook pages, but I simply do not know how to even begin and merge the accounts here.. so unless someone has some brilliant idea of how that could be done (*fingers crossed*), I'll probably remain being inactive on this account.

Colorful Collaboration - Photographers WantedFor the past two years I have enjoyed collaborating with many talented photographers to create my colorful paintings. It is time to renew that collaboration and create some more!
I am looking for mostly exotic animals, birds, plants, fruit, flowers and anything else that would really catch my attention.
You don't have to be a professional photographer to take part in it, just be passionate about what you do.
The photos don't have to be of extremely good quality, but they need to have a good/interesting composition and subject matter.
Every participant will receive credit and mention for the reference photo used here on DeviantArt, a high resolution digital image of my work which they can print for themselves (but not mass produce or sell) and the option to purchase the original painting at a reduced pric
