I'm always open to new things, experimenting, I like to acquire new knowledge that I can combine in my works. When I studied lead glass design, it helped a lot in knowing this profession for the birth of a variety of new ideas. I made several stained glasses style pictures, because the beauty of this art industry was very impressed. I find it stunning as these solid, fragile, thin materials form a particular scene or figure, and the light that's filtered through it makes it magical.

My artworks are inspired by the antique art trends, most notably Renaissance, Expressionism, Baroque, Symbolism and Art Noveau in addition the comics. I like to combine old styles with new trends.

My characters carry a natural, special beauty. I love to display the facial mimicry that I spice with natural charm in my works.

Because the grimace is special in every face, which tells playfulness, shyness and honesty about their owners, therefore I like to use my some pictures.

I work in pop surrealistic style. The classic, natural beauty characterizes the characters of my artworks.
