My beloved dog is Weimaraner Forrest, more precisely Forrest Gump, I named him after the hero of the film of the same name. He changed my life and thanks to him I bagan to better understand nature and animals. Thanks to him, I got into the world of those who are passionate aout their pets. Thanks to him, I turned to drawing pets and wild animals.
The relationships of people and animals are my fascination. They are in our world. We are in theirs. We are inextricably connected by our nature and the world we share. How we see each other is what moves me to create.
My style and creativity were honed by studying in an art studio of academic drawing by Lyudmila Perec,numerous master classes and training at the Summer School of the Repin Academy of Arts.

My portraits are based on the true likeness,uniqueness and character of your pets. I try to convey more in a portrait than photography can,wich will make this portrait special to your heart. A SHORT MOMENT IN TIME,CAPTURED FOREVER.
I have had experience of drawing pets that are still with us and pets that have saldly passed to the rainbow bridge. The utmost care and attention is taken in all commissions.
My artworks adorn walls in Canada, America, Europe, South Africa and Japan.
