I believe that God is not inaccessible; he is the inevitability, the time of human blossom. In this context, I am the contour, the starting point, the effort of the Creator. So sacred art for me is Life itself, manifested locally; it is a balance between freedom of expression and completeness of defining the meaning of holy, of art, and of life in general, because the depth of characterization forms the way of its creative expression, contexts of understanding, i.e. creates space and choice. My art is about feelings and experiences, dialogue and co-creation with the viewer and their differences, creating integrity in the presence of God.
