I was born and raised in Europe where I also earned my Bachelors degree in Fine Arts from the University of Zagreb in Croatia. When I moved to New York City I graduated from the Art Institute of New York City and earned an Associate degree in Graphic Design. I am now based in beautiful Hudson Valley. 

For as long as I remember I've loved painting and drawing and putting endless hours of detail in my work. I am a big typography lover and I get very enthusiastic when I work on custom made type. I am endlessly inspired with ornaments, patterns, dots, lines, textures and all kinds of materials. I use these elements in my paintings and in my design work. My paintings are usually made on thicker art board or canvas, and all detail is achieved with colored pens and then I add other materials such as acrylic paint, glitter glue, liquid gliding, beads, jewels and all other material I can find around my studio. I am constantly experimenting with textures and patterns. My design work is very much connected with drawing and painting and every time I can, I use these skills to enhance my design layouts. I feel blessed that I can live from the work I love doing and as a Jesus follower I thank Him for this every day.

When I am not working I love spending my time with my husband and my two adorable dogs. I enjoy nature, traveling and cooking for my friends and familly.
