"I try to find what in every creature is beatiful ,
paint how i see and understand nature in her deeper way"





Botany

Botanical illustrations aim to be scientifically accurate, and depict the identifying characteristic features of each plant.

After a live study and research of the species I take various sketch and notes including measurements and accurate colour matching to the specimen.i usally take also a lot of photo reference in different view for a better comprehension.

I love to focus on different life stage, and watch particurarly how light shine through the subject.

Animals



My other works are inspired by natural world and aim to capture the beauty, balance and relations of nature’s forms.

i love make an accurate research of every species including habitat, dimorphism, life cicle and morphological peculiarities. With the help of comparative anatomy i understand how it works and show it in my illustrations.

I love how every creature have something special and unique.
