Painting

Painting: I have been painting since childhood and my artistic inspirations are connected with visions and myth. To gain knowledge and inspiration from the ideas and experiences of other cultures I combined the study of painting with that of cultural anthropology at Hunter College CUNY.

In 2015 I received a scholarship and residency at Schöppingen  Art Village, Germany, and started an ongoing series of tempera on wood "icons" titled "Little Death," which I am working on now.

Many of my paintings are in private collections in the USA, Bulgaria and Germany.

The images below are not in any particular order.
