A Bit About Me

I grew up in the Czech Republic, where I studied graphic design and art therapy. After I moved to the US in 2018, I started to attend Mesa College, and in 2021 I completed my studies with an Associate of Arts degree. I have been a member of The San Diego Museum of Art Artists Guild since 2020. I frequently present my art on diverse occasions, and also the magazine SD Voyager published an interview with me in 2020 and Canvas Rebel in 2022.

 

Connection with My Spirit

During the pandemic, I spent most of my time at home. My connection to the outside world became only occasional. This solitude created a stronger bond with my inner world. My daily experience was mostly limited to the images inside my head. When I finally rejoined the outside world and engaged with social life, these images were suppressed and slowly vanished. 

However, this inner link became so important that the reconnection with the outside world and the endeavor to escape from solitude soon turned into an effort to experience this internal liaison again. Whenever I had the opportunity, I sat down with my sketchbook. I allowed my hands to walk freely on the paper, hoping that in this way, I would be able to reunite with my inner self. Pictures began to emerge from these automatic lines, and these became the basis for this series of paintings. This process is spontaneous, and the images are like letters from my soul that I can read when finished. These letters don't have clear messages, but they have a secret in them that forces me to return to the completed paintings and read them repeatedly.
