About me as illustrator, painter and author

I grew up drawing and learning about art alongside my father in his art studio. Following this passion of mine, I completed my studies at The National Art High School and New Bulgarian University, with a focus on Animation.

As an artist, I get my inspiration from the colorful and charmingly chaotic world of children. My illustrations depict exactly the genuineness of children’s play and its fun moments.

For more than twenty years I have enjoyed making illustrations for books and textbooks. Currently I am working on various projects, focused on creating new characters and drawing their fun stories. I also do paintings and personalized illustrations. My greatest motivation is to make the world a more colorful place.
