I began to follow in the footsteps of my artistic family's tradition even as a young child. I am fourth generation of Artists.
From the apprenticeship in my grandfather's studio I moved on to professional studies at the College of Fine Arts and Design in Brno, Czech Republic.
My wood-carvings can be seen in dozens of churches, catholic schools, convents and private collections in Europe, the United States, Canada and Australia.
ART BELONGS TO ALL WHO APPROACH IT WITH A READINESS TO BE CAPTURED OR "TAKEN IN" BY IT. ART HAS THE POWER TO AFFECT US, TO TOUCH US,TO EMBRACE US IN ITS REPOSE,TO FILL US WITH THE PEACE AND TRUTH IT CONVEYS THROUGH MATERIAL AND IMAGE.
IT CAN INVITE US, CAN LEAD US TO THE THRESHOLD OF THAT
MYSTERY WHICH NOURISHES ALL LIFE, HUMAN AND INANIMATE.
I REALIZE MY WORKS FROM MATERIALS CLOSE TO NATURE,
ESPECIALLY WOOD. THESE STRONG,NOBLE AND BEAUTIFUL
MATERIALS BLEND MOST INTIMATELY WITH THE RELIGIOUS, PERSONAL AND SPIRITUAL SUBJECTS FOUND AT HAND AND SUGGESTED BY TRADITIONS OF EVERYDAY CULTURE AND THE CHRISTIAN GOSPEL.
