I believe I have extensive skills, experience and education related to the field of theatre production. I have particular interest in and knowledge of history of arts and cultures regarding Theater, costumes of different historical times, motifs and architectural styles. I am able to use historical data in creation of new concepts taking advantage of my strong understanding of various techniques and technologies as well.
I work also in a field of book’s illustration, where I have extensive skills and experience. My education predisposes me to bring unconventional perspective to illustrative art.My works are enriching and informed by my knowledge of the history of culture. My professional experience in a variety of artistic techniques and theatrical arts as illustrator, costume designer and murals painter enables me to adapt historical materials to new artistic concepts and compositions that visualize narrative ideas. My highly detailed drawings use vivid narrative and illustrative imagery to merge the aesthetics of old cultures with the sensibilities of a present-day artist. In order to pass to readers a richness of fairy-tales worlds I use Anthropomorphism, attributing human characteristics to forces of nature, animals, mysterious creatures, deities and non-living things. Ongoing work in pen and ink drawings, watercolour and pencil drawings allows me to increase my professional skills. Read Less
