I am born and raised in Bulgaria. In the 90's I moved to Austria and studied at the Academy of Fine Art in Vienna. First for the Professor Joannis Avramidis and then for the Professor Michelangelo Pistoletto. In 1998 I took my MA degree and that same year I moved to Sweden and until 2012 I lived and worked in Uppsala. During that time I participated in numerous exhibitions in Scandinavia, throughout Europe and in the USA. My Art were awarded with several Prizes. In the summer of 2012 I moved back to Austria and now I live and work in St. Pölten. From here I exhibit my Art abroad. I work with Painting, Sculpture and Photography. During the years I have been working with a numerous of public projects and have exhibited my Art in several countries like: Denmark, Germany, Austria, Norway, Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria, Italy, Spain, USA , Sweden, Russia, Ukraine, Georgia, China and others. I have always been fascinated by the Human being. I see the Human body as a canvas, where the soul paints its own stories. So I see my role as an Artist to discover this stories and interpret them. I do that both imaginary - realistic and expressive - abstract. I express myself through Metaphoric compositions, Portraits, Still-lifes and Landscapes. I am looking for the human presence and absence in my works. By working mostly with models, I am trying to discover the inner story printed on their bodies and their faces.
