When did you know that art was your thing?
I grew up in a family of artists. My father is painter, my mother is a textile artist, my grandparents were painters and also my sister paints. My childhood environment was very creative, playing with paints, spending lost of time in theatre (my father worked as scene artist), spending time with my parents friends who were actors, artists, writers, musicians. But I was not sure if I wanted to be painter until my 30’s. I studied art, but after I finished the University, I was working as news graphs designer. Until I decided to work for myself, and work with projects, that are creative and inspiring and meaningful to me.

Do you have a favorite medium?
Mixed media in the moment, but I love to paint with water colours. I love the creative process, and the surprising moment when I feel that now the painting is finished and I have to stop.

What’s your favorite part of the art making process?
I am an energetic person, I work very fast and when the task is finished, I have to find something new to do. I get bored very fast, so I am trying some new techniques constantly. I love the feeling when I forget everything and only concentrate onĀ  painting. It is very energy demanding. If I don’t paint, I get grumpy.

What inspires you to create?
Nature, music, exhibitions, vintage papers, flea markets, movies, other people. Probably I can find inspiration in everything, just you have to look and concentrate. But I am convinced that working is the place for inspiration. I have to start and then it comes, even if I only paint lines or dots.

What’s the most rewarding thing about sharing your art with the world?
People who are buying my art, they write long emails to me, how they felt connection with my art and how happy they are now. I have met some very nice people through my art. Maybe I can inspire some.
