First and foremost, please introduce yourself…
I am a Bulgarian artist, who works and lives in Burģas,a city at the Black sea coast. I enjoy the process of developing various art projects. I am a Freelance Artist, Fashion Designer and Art Pedagog.
When and how did you get started?
Painting is my passion. I can say that I had never had that moment of deciding to be an artist. It just came simply into my life.
As a child my hobby was classical ballet, maybe that’s why ballet and body movement are still one of my inspirations in my work. Afterwards in my secondary school I studied intensively literature. I read a lot of philosophy and was writing poems.
I started painting when I fell in love with my partner, and I decided to make a painting for him as a birthday present.
Since then I fell in love with painting, and I didn’t stop painting. Throughout my life I was connected to different forms of art and now they are all interconnected in my artworks.
Currently I am interested in Painting, Digital Art, Short Movies and Fashion Design.
