About

I was born in the rural countryside of Southern Croatia. I came to Canada to start a new life with my lovely husband and growing family. Ever since I was a little girl, I sought to express myself creatively through artwork which incorporates a large array of colors and textures. My inspirations are my friends, family, nature and put simply, the beautiful world we live in. My artwork incorporates different techniques and tools, from oils, to watercolors and acrylics, but recently I am focusing on oil through the use of a palette knife. I've always been inspired by nature and I love to paint flowers, landscape, sea and everything that is relative to nature. I also have a formal schooling dealing with interior decorating and art that I have recently finished at Sheridan College.

Recently, however I discovered that painting while still a passion of mine, is not the only way through which I express myself .I love the art of felting as well.
I am self-taught fiber artist, and I spend much of my time felting and creating new designs. My favorite technique is Nuno felting because it offers me so many different texture and design possibilities that greatly enhance the richness of the product.
On my time away from the canvas or fabrics, I enjoy my daily job as floral designer. I love spending time with my family and also quiet time researching and getting involved in the art community.
I think that what makes me so happy to do what I do as an artist is that I am able to create pieces of art that encapsulate perfectly the feeling and emotion that is on my mind through the various tools and techniques I have developed over the years.

Art is my passion; my family is my blessing and happiness.
