Why did you pick this picture?
I painted the picture “Irises” as a gift for my mom’s birthday. It was a way to express the love to the most important person in my life. I was looking a long time for this idea. I wanted something special and very personal to impress her, the painting to bring beauty and warmth to her home, also make a memory of me, as I live far from her and we see each other two or three times a year. She likes gardening, grows many type of the flowers, the iris is her favorite one and she is crazy about color purple. I have worked on the picture for one month, in the end I was very proud of my creation. My mom was happily surprised with amazing gift.
Where did the idea come from?
The idea came in 2012 when I decided to decorate my apartment with images depicting roses. I just thought to myself, I could draw the pictures as I like. I bought paper, color pencils, frames and searched pictures and photos of flowers online. When I started to draw, I felt happy about my success, and became very exiting about the creating process. A new life started, I wanted to know all about art. I read a lot about art history, visited galleries, and watched many movies about the biographies of famous artists. I tried different technics using oil, acrylic, pastel, and watercolor. My art collection has been growing until today. I like to do this so much.
Why does this mean so much to you?
To be an artist is a great opportunity. I am involved into the beautiful part of the world. I feel joy and happiness using this language to express my emotions and feeling. The life became infinite, the new ideas never stop coming to my head. This creative process helps to resolve many mental problems breaking stereotypes and widen borders of your soul
