“I have an architectural education. And I like this profession. I build the whole world in every new book. And in real space I work as the designer, I project interiors, furniture, fixtures, tableware, fabrics.
I simply like to draw very much. It gives to me physical pleasure. My everyday life also allows many occasions to be glad and be inspired. I love the sun, the sea, theatre, fairy tales, fishes, birds. I like mountains very much, and also bright cities - Venice, Vienna, Prague, Rome, St. Petersburg, Madrid. I love my friends very much and I like to travel! All these things give me pleasure which I wish to share. Therefore I draw!
I like paints on a water basis - a water color, gouache, acrylic. They are mobile and I fill some spontaneity when I draw. They give a miracle a chance to infiltrate "into this world».
When I draw, it seems to me that I open the next unknown country. I see, what are landscapes, and how people are dressed, etc. The most important thing is - it must be interesting to me to travel there. And pictures will be interesting to»
