Painting has become an indispensable introspective and therapeutic method I develop purely intuitively without professional guidance. I create my paintings mostly without direct intervention of reason what makes the actual process of writing adventure. I don't give titles to my images forcibly, if they don't come naturally. It gives more space to the image speak for itself and for each viewer individually.
My paintings evoke genuine emotions and they are means to express hidden emotions and processes of subconscious and superconscious. Color is the dominant aspect of the images and is the most elaborate, mostly accompanied by abstract forms with real elements (trees, faces, eyes). This reflects the dialogue between the physical and spiritual worlds, which are in conflict, and the image is their synthesis.
Indian poet Niraj Kumar, who chosen one of my paintings on the cover of his latest collection of poems, wrote: "Tree holds the secret of existence and Katerina holds the key to the mystery of Tree!"
