Art is a manifestation of the human spirit.
A spring rain has just passed, I could still hear a distant thunder, yet the sun was already shining.
I am 4 years old.
Not quite awake, I walk barefoot in the garden after a nap.
Adults are drinking tea on the veranda.
I am alone among these huge trees. Various fragrances, sounds and colors of nature are all waking up including me.
I feel the warmth of the steam coming out of a moist earth, its breathing. Tiny drops of water shine on the trees, some fall to the ground.
I squint my eyes, and all around me begins to shine with all the colors of the rainbow.
This moment of absolute happiness I remembered for a lifetime.
If you ask me, “What was it?”
I would answer: “Nothing! I didn’t have a single thought or desire, nothing but emptiness..”
And at the same time it was life, the manifestation of Spirit.
It was a small child dissolving completely in the harmony of the universe.
The desire to experience this feeling, the desire to experience the joy of this harmony and the desire to share the happiness of the discovery with others led me to draw, as a way of understanding nature.
A different side of me wants to create and see the result.
The end result to me is joy times 100, when I am able to bring a moment of happiness to the lives of others. No matter what fascinated me, whether the interior design or dresses, jewelry, art or cooking, embroidery or painting, I see beauty in everything.
Behind me are years of professional experience, but I am still in the process of my journey, mastering my skills.
It is a difficult task for me to describe my achievements. It may sound like a fiction or a detective story full of wonders.
Yes, I know how to create wonders, I just need to raise my lazy ass and
become God’s assistant in creating them..
