The works of art I create originate in my experience of perceiving things, space, my thoughts
and awareness. I do not limit myself to working in a particular medium or subject, I search for a clear and playful balance between an artwork's message and its visual expression. This often leads me to dealing with a wide range of media and materials. My ideas usually become sculpture, photography, computer graphics or video. As an artist, I work with the language of visual forms and therefore industrial and graphic design are also fields of my interest.
 
Besides focusing on visual art, a major part of my life is devoted to music. I play the oboe and the cor anglais in the Smichov Chamber Philharmonic (since 2010) which cooperates with the folk-rock group Čechomor. In addition to the reed instruments I also play the flute in several other music groups, especially nu-jazz group Jamchestra (since 2012), the alternative folk and blues band Ryba (from 2008) and I cooperate with blues singer Jana Štromská (since 2011). I am also interested in Asian music, my internship in China introduced me to playing the transverse bamboo flute dizi and the vertical end-blown flute xiao. In 2010 we founded the Prague Silk-and-Bamboo Music Club, where traditional Jiangnan Sizhu music is played.
