About drawing: Being able to portray your thoughts and ideas on a paper is a great benefit, but drawing is much more than a proper drawing of lines and perspective construction – it gives confidence in what we do, it allows us to discard and believe in ourselves. Drawing develops the ability to watch and explore, which extends the range of vision in general.
“If we could clearly see a miracle in one flower, our whole life would change.”

My interest towards drawing has been since childhood, but I started at eleven years at the Manchester School of Art, where I spent five years in a creative way. In 2008, after graduating from the Manchester School of Art, I continued to study drawing and painting with the artist and graphic artist Clara Bartist at the Leeds Creative Arts Studio. During the time, together with the students of the studio, I participated in several exhibitions both in Leeds and in other cities of UK. In 2010, graduating from Gymnasium and Fine Arts, I went to London to fulfill my skills and prepare for entrance exams at the London Academy of Art. In the same year I entered the Manchester Design and Art Secondary School, the Interior Design Department. In 2011, I passed the entrance examinations and was admitted to the London Academy of Art, Sub-branch of Environmental Art. Along with the specific sections of the department, environmental objects and environmental design solutions, I continue to work in fine arts.
