Interview New & Abstract 2023

Interview about my art and inspirations at New & Abstract gallery. ,,Art, nature and music are a significant part of my life from childhood. I spent years playing on the piano, drawing and painting, but it took awhile before I decided to quit music and focus on fine art which at the end led me to study at the Academy of Fine Arts. After art school I focused on graphic design as a freelancer but also continued to paint until I joined Disney Consumer Products.”
