What was your artistic journey?
I learned and further perfected egg carving on my own. The road was hard and rocky, often the egg breaks just before completion and I have to start over. No two eggs are alike, the shell is not uniformly thick everywhere and the composition, lime content and surface texture are different every time.
Which Region has impacted your artistic journey most and why?
I am impressed by the traditional patterns of pysanky, a very old wax technique that is still practiced in Eastern European countries such as Ukraine and Poland. But I am also inspired by geometric patterns, cell structures and those found everywhere in nature.
