Marine painter depicting the stormy behavior of the ocean and waves
Inspired by the history of sea voyages and the romance of the sea, I strive to capture the power and unpredictability of the ocean by creating emotionally charged works of art.
emotionally rich works of art.

The era of maritime romanticism, which began in the 18th-19th centuries, included famous people - sailors, writers, artists, whose life and work were associated with the sea and maritime themes. Among them:
Herman Melville is the author of the novel Moby Dick, which explores the theme of whaling and sea adventures.

My paintings convey the atmosphere of anticipation and adventure that accompanied a sea voyage.
expeditions of past times. I pay special attention to details such as the shape and movement of the waves and how they move.
Waves, as well as the authenticity of historical ships. I use classical techniques and oil paints.
I convey the depth and texture of the sea, creating visual images that immerse the viewer in a world of sea adventures.

Through my painting I aim to evoke emotions and evoke memories of times gone by.

I strive to improve and learn new techniques.
I am constantly improving my skills and experimenting with composition and color to create unique pieces of art.

I hope that my works will not only allow the viewer to enjoy the beauty of the sea, but also awaken interest in history, sea travel and the heritage of the past.
