Interview with the Soul I graduated from a private study of various techniques. I studied Roman Mosaic with the English specialist Laurence Payne and The Foundations of Painting with Hungarian academic painter Istvan Gerstner. I prefer the traditional techniques of painting, mosaics, frescoes, encaustics. When I begin a piece of work, it is an interview with my soul. I look inside myself. The idea for the piece comes to me in the form of thoughts, dreams and desires. I believe that there are countless masterpieces to be found in nature. If I am able to cast just a few of them in a positive light, and convince you, the viewer, to look at them again with greater appreciation and perhaps a fresh perspective, then I have succeeded as an artist.
