For me, art is a way to express myself and my inner world.

I love to express myself in a field of printmaking and I became really interested in it during my study.

The motifs for my prints are mostly abstract. They are created from my inner feelings and they are a sort of subconcious writings of things happening around me, my experiences in life. Through basic compositional elements such as dots (I am exploring different forms of dots) and lines, I am able to express them in my work.

In my prints I use colour, but (as you can see in my works) it is not used in a convential way. In my prints it is expressed in lines and dots and not in planes or surfaces.

It is interesting form me to see the same form in different colours and mixing different plates in one print. I also use one colour in different shades. When using darker shades you first see the shape of the printed form and then the actual colour of it. While using lighter shades, the first thing that you observe is the colour.

Most of my abstract works are titled »Untitled«, with this I allow the spectator to experience the work in his own way, withouth any presumptions.

I have also participated in different international printmaking exhibitions and I also won the “Primavera” 2014 prize for best young artist in Slovenia. Details can be found on my webpage.
