I strive to provide exceptional archival quality of my paintings for the art lovers and collectors. I primarily work with single-pigment professional paints that have highest lightfastness ratings. My ground of choice is 100% cotton - canvas and rag hand and mould made papers.

I paint with ethically sourced or synthetic brushes and self-made tools, using eco-friendly materials whenever possible and reasonable. Occasionally, I use archival quality (pH neutral) or found papers and textiles, preferably recycled or repurposed. My studio is minimalistic and now has a view into my orchard.

Most of my paintings can be exhibited with exposed edges, or framed according to the customer's wish. I do not use wooden surfaces or support structures.

Meditative drawing was my project for switching my mind off in the middle of almost anything else, at the time when I could not paint in the environment I was.

It is started with zentangle-like doodling, but it looks like it never was about patterns for me, just about drafting compositional ideas.

The principle is:

    Focus deeply on simplest possible drawing and see what is possible in this tight frame.
