About me
I live in Croatia, a beautiful country in Europe. I was born in 1966 and art has always been a part of my life. My story is beautiful and hopefully story. It is story of rebirth and miracle in all senses. After I spend my whole life writing poetry, short stories (4 published books), I suddenly felt strong connection with fluid technique. After shoulder surgery in 2019 that went wrong so I was close to death I felt I must paint. Fluid art amazed me and with pain in my right hand I started to write my acrylic story on canvas.
My first physical art exhibition was in December, 2019 in a small café in my City, Osijek. I was invited to an online exhibition at Centre for culture and information, Maksimir /Zagreb/Croatia. In 2020 I won in 24h Gallery at Teelent Official on Instagram and I got my first catalogue from the digital exhibition. On webpage Vijuga I was chosen as The best artist of the year 2020.
