2015 Registered as a professional artist
Self-taught. I don’t use specific styles and techniques, I always try to make my own ways. Nowadays I focus on realistic drawings, paintings with acrylics, watercolors and especially, real coffee.
It’s the whole world that inspires me. Traveling, people, the ocean, places with it’s unique atmosphere, breathtaking views, adventures, feelings. My life.
As a child, I used to paint a lot and, unluckily for my parents, everywhere, incl. books and furniture. Later at school, teachers noticed my skills and invited my parents to discuss the options for the art education for me. After a few art classes, I told my mom, that I won’t go there anymore. The reason was that I didn’t like when somebody was trying to change the way I paint and teaching me how they do instead.
I discovered my passion for traveling and collecting memories from all over the world, already at very young age, and it became a part of my lifestyle. Every time I travel, my world gets bigger. I experience different life, meet amazing people and listen to their stories. That’s something that motivates and inspires me. I feel like my purpose is to forward those stories, thoughts and experiences to others and I’m still searching for different ways of doing it.
I spent the beginning of my life by the sea and I feel connected to it, wherever I go. I believe, that everyone should have that special place for the recharge, a place of calmness, healing and a source of energy. For me, it’s the ocean.
Whole my family is somehow related to art and there was always a guitar and piano in our home. I also love writing, taking photographs and many other artistic ways of expression. A huge piece of my life was also dedicated to dancing.
