All this became my inspiration, a little world, from which I drew my Muse and so decided to link their fate with the art".

It all blends perfectly and complements the images that are in the depths of shells: sharks surrounded by the sea, women-бабочек that are opening their wings towards the world, imitating the dancers of the 60-х years, portraits of ladies and noblewomen, shiny, inviting each part and the fluttering wings of a dragonfly and more.
