About year and a half ago, I was depressed... and then I found drawing.

At first, it was simple for me, and I started to put all my thoughts and feelings into it. It was very comfortable to find a way out the darkness, there are many different ways, my art was mine, and I hope you will feel something!

My ideas are usually coming from how I feel. If I feel like I have heavy thoughts, I'll try to get rid of that feeling or just make it easier for me by painting it and sharing it with people. It's a real scientific way to cope, I think. Then I think about the easiest visual way to produce my idea... maybe I can draw just a couple of lines, maybe it has to be a complete color picture. Whichever I feel would be right and direct to the viewer's heart.

This is exactly how I feel. You have that lump in your throat and tears that stream down your face, each one is like a blade drawing a line into your skin.

It's not difficult to come up with ideas, what's difficult is to paint them, to have energy and such. I'm always overwhelmed by those feelings, it's like an inner storm I face. Finishing one piece usually takes 6-12 hours depending on the details.

All other artists inspire me. Just the idea that someone picked up the pen and tried to create what's in their mind. I think we are all born with our unique style, but it's not in making the eyes bigger or the nose smaller. It's about the personality in your lines and the way you color, so it's just a matter of time - after you master copying, you'll start to create.

I started my painting career just to feel better and I think my goal is to continue doing that. I hope to keep helping myself and other people through what I paint and what I say.

Music is powerful. Even when it gets hard, it is the one thing that will always be there for you, no matter what.
