Turning emotions to a picture


Strong woman - Lagertha

Apparently, series of Vikings was very strong experience. Characters development and all stories from northern countries which are so different from culture of mid Europe history as we know it. My impression I must admit I didn’t know much about it, just basic information what I learned from school when I was a child. The way how it is possible to capture all emotions, life struggles, habits, values and…

Rozdíly technik maleb

Olejomalba lepenka nebo rám - rám z masivní borovice olejové barvy jsou vysoce světlostálé (používám olejové barvy značky Umton, Master Class nebo Van Gog) složitější na výrobu - některé části je potřeba nechat zaschnout než se zase bude nanášet další barva. Schnutí může trvat v závislosti na požadovaném výsledku 1-3 dny. nanáší se závěrečný lak, který malbu chrání před prachem a nečistotami, zvýrazní…

How long does it take to paint picture like this?

This is the most often question I get all the time. So I’m supposed to answer it in detail, right? :) I don’t count You may guess it’s not that easy to sum it up. I don’t really count hours or minutes how long I spent on my painting. Imagine you have the most favorite hobby — like staring at the sunset, reading a book you’re really into or talking to your new partner for hours — do you count hours? Where is…

What did I need to start painting?

I skipped paintings of cubes and balls and other useless pictures. Yes, I needed to practice. So I did. I bought some paper and oil colors, brushes, pallet, turpentine and that was it. I didn’t want to destroy canvas because I had no idea how it will behave. So I chose watercolor paper which costs 7CZK (like $0.30). Inspiration I spent a whole day of watching video tutorials of Bob Ross. I understood how to…

I‘m web developer why do I draw and paint?

This is always the first reaction of surprised people who I work with and then they find out I‘m an artist. I‘m not gonna explain how difficult personality man can be, the point is somewhere else. Faces Since I remember I‘ve had a close connection to music. And journey from music to visual art is not so far. When I was at primary school I was fascinated by people‘s mimics and their faces. Then I tried to…


My story

As a little girl I didn’t have careless childhood. A lot of situations was quite complicated and we didn’t belong among wealthy families. But even though I realized I could feel better and then it started a misson for happy life.

I read once if I have something pretty in front of my eyes even it should be daisy in the glass so it helps me to feel well. Since then I had been thinking about it.

At the moment I changed my view and I started to think what to have around me and how can I do it. Later there were posters of my favorite music bands and then I was staring on them for so long until I desired to draw them, to express what I can see in their faces. And so I had started to turn into drawings my deep feelings which nobody has no clue about . And from black and white they became colored. Up to once I discovered oil paints which I fell in love with completely. At that moment I understood there is no way back and what was only hobby became my life purpose. To catch beauty or feelings around, to my picture. I understood this is important part of me, my essence and maybe one of the reasons why I’m here on the Earth.

Every brush stroke compensated hours of therapies I would need to be what I’m without a shame. From the angry and scattered person hard skin peeled off and I’ve started to integrate my sensitive part until I realized I belong to hypersensitive people. This reality helped to perceive as an advantage and I can use these abilities in artistic creations.
