Yellow and Black Photography Quote (1).p

“I share with you my creative world in colors, emotions, and paintings. I will be happy if my artworks touch your soul, make you dream, and bring you beauty and joy!”

As an artist living in Sofia, Bulgaria, I am one of those lucky souls who received an unexpected gift in their life - an endless source of inspiration and joy - the ability to see and feel the beauty of nature, to discover it constantly every day in everything around me and to recreate it in my paintings.

"Desire" is one of my intuitive landscapes, inspired by the beauty of the sea - the places on the seashore, where the peaceful, endless view of the sea surface lets my soul dream. I painted it this winter, being far from nature physically, but close to it in my imagination and through my art.

My art expresses my emotions and reflects my connection with nature. I would present myself as an intuitive, not an academic artist.

Freedom

Oil

“Freedom” is one of the works, which I created Alla Prima in one breath. It perfectly matches its title, because my associations and feelings during the process were those – freedom, beauty, and power. I painted it in the autumn of 2020.

Painting with oils is my favorite technique, inspired by nature, the sea, and the seasons. I love oil painting with a spatula because this gives my artworks the contrast of finesse and lightness and at the same time, strength and embossed texture.

I am happy when my art touches and thrills someone and when the paintings meet their people.

When I was a child, I attended the children's art school in my hometown - a magical place from which I keep some of my best memories. Subsequently, my professional path took a different direction and after many years my creativity reappeared.

Three years ago, a feeling of irresistible longing and need to meet the colors and the palette appeared in my life. Initially, I started painting with oil paints under the mentorship in master art classes of the Bulgarian artist Georgi Petrov and the Russian artist Alexander Sergeev. To them, I owe my style as an artist - the freedom, expression, and power in my paintings.
