Art, illustrations, movies, the world around. Inspired person will always find an inspiration and beauty somewhere.
Q3: What are your techniques?
I have plenty of them.
Q4: What is the main idea or feeling behind your works?
I like fairy tales. My pictures are my fairy tales, the other inner side of me. They are feminine, fragile, a little bit romantic, a little bit dark, mysterious and thoughtful. They are silent, but they tell a story.

Q9: Show us (link) your very first work. Describe it from techniques till feelings.
It was my first portrait photoshoot and first prepared photoshoot with a model and some accessories. There was no specific idea, just wanted to bring a retro style. It was the first time I tried cross-processing in color correction.
Q10: What did change from your first work till now?
Everything changed, I think it’s obvious. From techniques till concepts.
Q11: What is art for you? Escaping from reality or the essence of life?
All of it. It is making fantasies real, capturing beauty, showing unseen, expressing myself, enjoying the process.
