I am a gypsy. My soul has the spirit of a gypsy. And since there have never been any gypsies in my mother's or my father's sides of the family I can only assume that being a gypsy is just my thing, my personal, unique need.
I love freedom. And through my pictures I wish to express my feelings on freedom and about my own struggle to be free.
There was a time - before I was told that I should be different and special - when I was just ME, ordinary, unremarkable, happy ME. That state of mind was agreeable and satisfying to me and now I wish to regain it.
It will cost me a lot but I can see the deep meaning and benefit of attaining that end. The gypsy within me rejoices at this thought :)
Being creative is my way of achieving freedom and is a way of communicating and being at peace with myself.
I create simple symbols and artistic forms to describe what is happening to me and how I feel about things and the goals I wish to set myself in life. This inevitably includes the stops and checks I have already experienced on the way through life, the steps that have led me from the start of this journey to... who or where can one tell?
And I call my art, these simple symbols and artistic forms created to reach deep into one’s soul and to lighten the road ahead - emonimalism.
