I have studied art both in Croatia, the country of my birth, and London where I lived for 15 years before moving up to Yorkshire. Despite the education I have always kept my own independence and preserved my artistic freedom. I paint spontaneously from within, expressing a fragment of feeling, a memory or an impression of my environment. I like to capture a brief moment rather than a complete narrative thus allowing the viewer to be proactive. I have sold out during my exhibitions, had several commissions and currently have work in a number of galleries and homes in UK, Croatia, Slovenia, the USA and Spain. As well as showing my work on-line, I like to organize gallery exhibitions where I can meet with my potential customers and generally communicate with people in person. I am very happy to paint for specific projects, people, environments e.g. I have painted abstract portraits of people (very exciting and new idea) , used a fitting colour scheme for a specific space without compromising my own creativity. I consider myself a very versatile artist which stems from my love of colour and a varied experiences of life.
