I was born and raised in Croatia. After completing high school I
studied business and tourism in Split Croatia. I discovered the love for
art early in my childhood through sketching figures, portraits, and landscapes
in my notebooks, dreaming of becoming an artist one day. My life took me in a
different direction in 1994 when I left Croatia for Sweden to escape the
Yugoslavian conflict. After the war was over in 1997, I moved to California
where I have resided since.
I studied painting at the
Department of Theater and Arts at Saddleback College, specializing in oil
media, under the instruction of Vito Leonardo Scarola, and Italian art
instructor who encouraged my artistic talents and desire to create very
unique pieces of art. At Saddleback I found myself in the distinctive style of
contemporary realism. I enjoy painting in this style and sharing my creative works with my customers.
My art business has been designated as a "Trusted Art Seller" with The Art Storefronts Organization, which means you can shop with confidence, and know that I stand behind the quality and value of my products.
My primary inspirations stemmed
from the works of Croatian painter Vlaho Bukovac, John Singer Sargent, and
Rembrandt van Rijn. To this day, I draw inspiration from visiting museums and galleries
wherever I travel. My current home in Southern California has brought many
additional sources of inspiration.
As a colorist I strive to capture exact
details and colors. My methods comprise of preparing canvases, mixing
colors, and layering oils for depth and definition to achieve realism.
Successfully showing in both gallery and art shows has been a wonderful experience. I love sharing my art with the world.
