I am so pleased with my beautiful advent tree. It's a gift for my son as he starts his family.

Where imagination meets creativity

You often hear the stories of people staring with their dreams from scratch and building up to become the person/artist/creator that they always wanted ( or close).
It is not every day that you hear of people that didn't even have a scratch to start from.

Born in Bulgaria, fluent in German and Swedish, getting ready to begin a life in Germany as undergraduate student the best worst thing happened to me- I fell in love. I taught myself English ( and very proud of it) and began a new life not from scratch, but from the absolute zero in the US. Now that I am thinking about it, not even from zero, from under the sea level is more exact expression.

Being creative, curious and stubborn ( especially the last one) gave me the opportunity to brave 8 turbulent years that included creative wandering and job hopping, but led to the final step in the right direction- dropping everything else ( except my Masters degree, which I am finishing now) and opening my own Etsy store. Being paid for what you love doing, isn't that a dream job?

Since I opened the store I've been allowing myself to dream bigger than usual and consider my current endeavor a stepping stone in my artistic future. Will I get there? I surely hope so. The most important thing to me is that my family believes in me and that I believe in myself. The rest is yet to be delivered.

Join me on my artistic journey and I promise you would not be disappointed. And if you are curious to learn more about me, check out my professional portfolio, you might be surprised:

Happy Shopping!
