Born and raised in Bulgaria, I studied at the Academy of Fine Art in Vienna, Austria. First for the sculptor Joannis Avramidis and then for Michelangelo Pistoletto. 1998 I took my MA degree and that same year I moved to Sweden and until 2012 I lived and worked in Uppsala. During this time I have participated in numerous exhibitions in Scandinavia, Europe and the the USA and my Art was awarded with several Prizes. The summer of 2012 I moved back to Austria and now I live in Pöchlarn, the Birthplace of the great Artist Oskar Kokoschka. Here I actively work with the International Artist Symposium “Atelier an der Donau”.

I work with Painting, Sculpture and New Media Art. During the years I have 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, USA , Sweden 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, by working mostly with models, trying to discover the inner story printed on their bodies.
