ABOUT THE ARTIST:
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!
I paint the beauty that I found in the simple society of old Mediterranean villages, towns and Pacific Ocean, the very places where I was born, raised and where I live. My paintings are an escape from our bursting lives to the simple world of the Adriatic Sea and Pacific Ocean, where peace, love, freedom, heat and scent exists.
