‘I believe that the most important thing in creativity is not talent, as is often the case, but a healthy person who, through talent, shows their desire for a healthy life.

I admire not the people’s genius, but the way they use this genius.

I believe that in a person’s creative life, the most important factor is their uniqueness. By developing our individuality (and not a hidden desire to be like someone, somehow in the future), we fill ourselves with meaning and true pleasure, which is rightfully given to us by nature itself. By creating without “intermediaries”, we become valuable as creative people and bring something truly new into the world.

Essentially, as a teacher, I look for ways to establish your creative contact with yourself so that you can create in the future and find self-sufficiency and pleasure in it.
