I try to make so that all of my pieces of art would bring some kind of idea to the viewer. It relates to the whole art, even subjects, that don`t have not only artistic, but even applied purpose.

As any artist I`m capable to create any kind of sculptures,but most of all I like to work in the animalism genre. In the portrays of animals I try to capture not only the natural grace and plastic of my characters, but even the complicated and sensitive soul of dumb animals.

I consider that sculptor must lead his work from birth of an idea to it`s full realization all by himself. That`s why I sculpture the model myself, take a cast of model myself, cast and do the finishing myself.
