How would you describe/define yourself?

I would define myself as a woman for everything, I am not afraid of challenges and dreams that I fulfill. I have been working in the male sphere for 12 years, which means that during that time I have formed myself and my view of the world is completely different from that of most women :)

When and why did you decide to choose painting designing as a career? 

I have been drawing, doodling, painting since I was little, I was always looking for an object that I would transform into my painting, because only paper or canvas was not enough for me. So the choice in this direction was clear, that is why I studied applied painting and then also manual processing of textiles.

What according to you is a favorite part of being a Paint Artist?

it's relaxation and a vision to capture all the feelings at a given moment, it's searching for yourself in chaos. and of course hours are spent trying to achieve a certain effect.

What inspires you as an Artist? How do you visualize your muses?

I am inspired by the surrounding world, emotions, interpersonal relationships, ancient cultures, microbiological relationships, cells, I leave a link in each work.

What’s your signature painting element? And why?

my typical element is connecting with a kind of network and also celling. everything that is around, whether positive or negative, I try to transfer to the canvas and connect the dominance of the black network with positive emotions into one positively perceived whole for the observer. cells because it is a birth ourselves and the life around us, and if I want to leave a legacy, just from the cell itself we will prove to perceive and change our thinking and thus also the world around us.

The painting you created are best without any doubt, but who and which things were your inspiration while creating such painting?  

I think that everyone has something in them, but in my opinion the best work at the moment is Albín Animal and it carries a great message for human perception. just because someone is different and different doesn't mean they don't live, in fact each one of us is unique. the work is a message for other nationalities, genders, cultures or religions that we are equal.

What’s the best piece of artistic advice you’ve heard? And do you follow it?

I heard that art is a gift to see the world through different eyes, and I follow that.

As we all know job of a painter is very tough. So how do you keep your mental and physical health fit?

for me, painting is my mental balance. it's hard to work, to devote myself to art and that's why I like to get to know other countries and places thanks to the fact that I exhibit all over the world :) but I like to relax on the beach under a palm tree, where I get new strength and inspiration to create.

What advice would you give to someone just starting out in their career and hoping to make it big as a Paint Artist? 

let them not lose hope and let them create under all circumstances. I graduated from school and didn't paint for more than 10 years because I created a background and my dreams and the loss of a loved one brought me back to this artistic path and I firmly believe that it should be like this to mature into this specific kind of my work.
