What do you aim to say by the themes in your art?
In my works, I express the feelings of people and everything related to how we relate to nature.
The painting "Scream" is an image of a desperate woman. In the world, as in our country, there is often an unfair attitude towards people. A woman is inherently fragile, but our modern world, due to its globalization and urbanization, is under great pressure and often faces injustice. The composition depicts the image of a woman. There is so much pain and despair in her that she is already wounded, all bandaged and screaming in pain.
Where does your inspiration come from?
Everything can inspire me! Problems with ecology. political military action. The position of women in society.
Do you have experiences that impacted your art?
Perhaps I often encountered injustice and lies, which influenced the main theme of my work.
Do you feel your art challenges existing barriers?
I think yes.
What are your long-term artistic goals? 
In addition to painting, I do tapestry. My goal is to combine painting and tapestry and turn them into one. And in the future I will reveal all of the above. Creativity is like space and the topic for creativity in the future may be different.
What advice do you have for aspiring artists?
Be always in search and work!
