This is the place where cats rule.
Every day is a new opportunity for a more creative approach to everything we do, so my approach to artistic expression has also developed. In the very beginning it was associated with black and white photography, through expression and works that are expressions of internal states, not necessarily related to a particular concept or intention, to more extensive works by which I ponder the relationship between human and other animals. They are for me our mirrors, our companions, equally intelligent and special.
I started my blog as a place of presentation of works, and now, after a while, I bring it to life by writing about the creative process, the works that inspire me, creativity in collaboration with animals, creativity of the animals, thinking of human as one of the beings of the multitude, what drives us and ennobles our consciousness.

Getting into the circle, keeping it moving, making it attractive for yourself, is it also that we do it for the others?
Hidden from the eyes of spectator, the one is slapping the face. I try to dig in deeper into the context of the ‘relation’.
I love ‘my’ cat family too so that is how I started to create these unique artworks first for myself and then for other humans. I named it Memento.
And I would love to create that unique peace for you to treasure memories on that special kinship.
To create a custom artwork Memento I use special materials that you send to me. It is hair collected from ‘your’ dog or cat family member during a daily grooming or feathers that your little bird friend left on the carpet.
