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 English horn in the Smichov Chamber Philharmonic (since 2010). In addition to the reed instruments I play the flute and perform with blues singer Jana Štromská (since 2011).
Former membership in other groups: Jamchestra (nu-jazz), Ryba (alternative folk and blues), Jull Dajen (Celtic), Gaddede (folk), Vinohrady Symphony Orchestra and hosted in many other groups, notably Čechomor and Petra Janů with the Smichov Chamber Philharmonic.
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.
