Hello and welcome! My name is Mirna and I am European born and a Hudson Valley, NY based artist. I hold a Bachelor's degree in Fine Arts and an Associates degree in Graphic Design. My art journey started a long time ago. As a child I was influenced with my mom's creativity and her amazing interior design skills. As a result of this I discovered my talent for drawing, painting and design and I've never stopped since.
Some time ago I discovered that I can actually use my art and graphic design skills to make patterns. It opened a brand new creative perspective for me. In my work I am constantly inspired with nature, colors, textures, fashion and architecture. I use these elements in my design work and in my paintings. I work from my sunny home studio under close supervision of my two doggies. The little one loves to be on pictures but the big one is not a fan of cameras.
I love animals and my two dogs bring so much joy to my life. They always remind me of the importance of living in the moment. I always urge people to adopt animals and give them a new beginning.
When working on projects I divide my time between graphic and surface design, painting, and restoring our house. I truly believe that every creative person is creative in many fields, so for me, designing patterns or logos, or restoring our mid century fixer upper comes so naturally to me. I feel grateful that I can pursue what I love doing and as follower of Christ I am thankful to Him.
Thank you for stopping by! If you have any additional question about my work, or if you want to work/collaborate with me please fill out the contact form and I will get back to you as soon as possible.
