Personal credo:

"Painting the icon is the special conversation with the Lord and also with oneself. The silent pray, that gives me the feeling of inner peace and harmony. This is the time for rethinking the Bible stories and the ten Commandments in the context of the modern human life because the Bible is timeless. I think that first of all God is Love and Mercy. And the daily icon painting helps me to live my life with this understanding".
