I am to inspire you


All little girls draw princesses and ballerinas, and dreams of becoming them one day. Acquiring a professional artist education, I continue to pursue this theme further. I transform all your thoughts, feelings, dreams, sadness, joy and love in ballerina images. Ballerina is actually almost like an angel, only instead of wing they have a tutu. They symbolize the delicate and graceful soul of the woman. The image of Ballerina can be associated with all type of woman.

Contemporary art is trying to shock and surprise the audience, but my desire is to make you happy. For centuries, art has been ruled by beauty - the subjective and the objective, absolute and relative. Therefore, I am interested in the beautiful transformation of contemporary painting. The image of ballerina allows me to create endless compositions using stylization and movements that reminds us of a flight. I am inspired by the iconic art, as well as Gothic and Art Nouveau.
