Based in: Ljubljana
I was born in Croatia. I graduated in painting from the Ljubljana Academy of Fine Arts . Today I live in Ljubljana, capital of Slovenia
My main occupations are drawing and teaching.
I teach art on private schools and run art courses and workshops. Also write about art, in 2011, I published practical book »From drawing to painting«
which was recently sold out.
Last few years my main occupation is drawing. I achieve optimal expression using and mastering classical drawing techniques as graphite pencil, charcoal, ink and pastel.
Source of my inspiration is fascination with rhythms created by variety of forms in nature.
To emphasize all that rhythms I usually place my motifs into carefully defined cut-out compositions in which they vary from image to pattern or offer close look to inner spaces.
I am also very interested in ornament as a way of visual expressing of ideas; in this point I explore relation between realistic and abstract concept and between image and pattern.
