The main topics I research are personality in social culture, people in the environment and environmental issues.
It is important for me to analyze the environment in which we are and how we affect it. When I create a collage,
I seem to have a dialogue with myself and the viewer, paying attention to what is happening around.
The feature of the collages I create is the use of hands, which enhance the action, emotional state and call to action.
The use of mixed textures, such as torn and smooth edges of magazine fragments, often creates unexpected images
that form the main composition, and the selection of colors enhances their meaning.
