Traditional artist from the Czech Republic with an aim for mainly figurative art.

Mission Statement:
Creating what I love in hopes that those original, hand painted pictures can bring beauty in homes all over the word. The feeling that someone appreciates my creation and is willing to make it a part of one's life is the most welcoming and gratifying thing in the World.

When you put too much information in, you can rob your audience to find their meaning in the piece.
