“I enjoy painting nature – striving to capture beauty in its purest form. Painting landscapes connects me to the natural sacredness of the earth. I love to incorporate symbols of plants, water, skies, and trees that represent healing, life, wisdom and harmony. My passion and vision is also to paint images that portray my Ukrainian heritage as well as other cultures. Communicating ancient history and ethnic beauty, in my art work.”
