I was born in 1976 in Opava – Czech republic. I studied marketing and economy at VSB-TU University Ostrava. Since 2011 I have been painting under the supervision of the academic painter MgA. Mimoza Botsin and MgA. Petra Raska. I took an inspiring course at the British painter David John Lloyd. Now i work in my studio in Opava.

I focus mainly on abstract expressionism and minimalism.

Artist statement

My paintings are mainly about clear state of the mind and present moment.
I focus on the impermanent and conditionality of phenomena when the colors are mixed together and everything is constantly changing.

I use handcrafted tools, because i like try new techniques and procedures of the process of painting. My paintings are multilayered with structures.


When I paint, I like the state of the mind when painter, painting and the painting process are the one, with no expectations and hands spontaneously paints the present moment. From this present moment and the state of mind, interesting compositions and paintings are appearing.
