I never painted before in my life and couldn’t even imagine that I would start. The root of my creativity stems from a desire to live a long life free from unhappiness, a life for the Here and Now. I was inspired to take a brush and paint by my friend, The People’s Artist of Ukraine, Mikhail Turovsky. Inspiration is contagious – once inspired you are capable of anything.

 

I am like a child who is seeing the world anew and this is so wonderful! I am experiencing a constant state of happiness at the ability to create. There is no fear. I am moving forward with a soul full of light.
