On art...

I have been making art and crafts since I was a little girl. The first vivid memory I have of myself is drawing greeting cards and crafting a guitar from cardboard paper.

On watercolors...

I discovered watercolours in 2016 and have been hooked ever since. My favourite supplies are: Hahnemühle watercolour papers, Daniel Smith and Schminke Horadam watercolour tubes and Pebeo watercolour inks. 

On colors...

 I love all colours even dull ones such as grey. But some of my favourite ones are Gold Green, indigo blue, burgundy, lemon yellow. 

On books...

I love Leo Tolstoy, Jane Austen, Victor Hugo and Oscar Wilde. The more I read, the more books I like. Some of my favorite classic books are: 

– Kreutzer Sonata, Confession, The death of Ivan Ilyich by Leo Tolstoy 

– Persuasion by Jane Austen 

– Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck

– A Doll’s House by Henrik Ibsen 

– The Miserables by Victor Hugo 

– Siddhartha by Hermann Hesse

– Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne

On book art tales...

I love reading so much that occasionally I paint art that is inspired by a book that I read and love. It contains symbols from the book (occasionally as hidden messages) such as quotes, information about the heroes/ author, scenes etc.

On blogging...

You can read my blog where I express in writing my artistic journey and my inner thoughts on art…
