Profession of a make-up artist had determined the direction of my work - portrait. Observing women, their relationships with the world around me, inspires me to be creative. In the works, the viewer can always see and feel the feminine beginning, which I convey not only in form but also in color. Attentive contemplation of my contemporary, communication with her helps to create a more realistic portrait, even when I do not use classical techniques. Through portraits, I study a woman's character, and it helps to understand and accept myself.
