- With toes my legs are buried
In the ground like roots.
From the soil I uproot myself.
I was born in 1974 in Vitez and I finished my school education in Zagreb. I have been painting and writing since 1992 in order to express the spirit that moves me from inside. My poetry collection called ‘Prints of Depth’, which I illustrated myself, was published in 1998. I also illustrated seven other books of different authors. Since 2001 I have been a member of the international Association of Mouth and Foot Painting Artists. I graduated painting at Free Academy of Art in the class of Mr. Donald Hall in Split, Croatia, in 2007. I have participated in three-year painting workshop led by Professor Carmelo Puzzolo. I have been a participant of great number of art colonies and I have led art workshops for children in kindergartens and schools and for children with special needs.
Every year I regularly participate in Festival of Equal Opportunities in Zagreb. I had 14 independent exhibitions and over 20 collective ones in Croatia and abroad.
In April 2017 I participated in the art fairs in New York City called New York ArtExpo, ArtExpo Ljubljana, Parallax Art Fair in London (2017 and 2018) and in the international exhibition in Athens.
In April 2018 I exhibited my 4 artworks on the international exhibition in Hong Kong. In October 2018 I exhibited in Paris on the international art fair.
I participated in an international collective exhibition in the Italian city of Ascoli-Piceno. The organizer of the exhibition is AthensArt The International Arts Festival under the slogan ‘Friendship through art can change the world’. The exhibition was held from April 7 to May 15, 2022.
I am a member of HDLU Zagreb (Croatian association of Visual Artists) which in 2017 awarded me an acknowledgement for international achievements and promotion of Croatian visual art and culture abroad.
I live and work in Zagreb.
