Manitoba's Endangered Species
Manitoban Skies are showing the vast and endless skies in Provence of Manitoba, Canada, where I'm living right now. From the morning in the dog park or the clean and clear skies at noon, to sunset over the lake, over to icy skies at northern night and the light show of Aurora Borealis. I hope I transferred my amusement by these immense skies to you, the viewer through my acrylic on canvas paintings.
My landscape paintings are very much influenced by places I traveled and lived in. I tried to portray to you, the viewer, nature in its beauty and different scenery such as mountains, valleys, trees, revers, forests arranged into a coherent composition.
Birch Trees is a collection of physical and spiritual nourishment, a union of fertility. They are a symbol of femininity with their flowing leaves and long branches, while the trunk is masculine. I hope I portrayed that to you with my paintings.
The Sun is always shining when I’m around the flowers. They make me feel happiness and gratitude. I’ll have endless inspiration being surrounded by the beauty of a flower.
Poppies are fostering peace and the symbolic red colour of love. Their gentleness and freedom of growing in fields show us the strength of surviving. I brought that experience with acrylic on canvas.
Iris Series are impressions of beautiful flowers. The series possesses a wide variety of colours. Their name comes from the Greek word for a rainbow, which is also the name of a Greek goddess Iris. The collection contains 5 acrylic on canvas paintings.
To be inspired with different motives shows my playfulness and the child in me. I’m always interested to try something more, different and new.
Horses paintings are reflective of my child hood as well. I was always fascinated with the noble horse. I hope I transferred my love to horses through these paintings.
From the ephemeral dandelion, to a variety of birds, to the enigmatic and superior king of the wildlife, the wolf, I will always have an inexhaustible desire to paint these kinds of scenes. I hope I brought that wilderness through my paintings to you.
Universe is a reflection of my soul. The universe surrounds us, it's in our bones, and we don't see the end. When gazing up at the night sky I see the beauty of endlessness. Paintings with acrylic on canvas give me endless possibilities and transformation of my mind to show the viewer true colours of my heart.
Each one of the portraits I painted represents a different individual and their own experiences and emotions throughout their life.
Mediterranean Daydream are memories of my childhood and youth expressing happiness growing up back home and spending time at the Adriatic coast. With my acrylic choices of colours I brought the warmth of the Mediterranean Sea.

Kastel, Banja Luka, Bosnia&Herzegovina is one of my favourite places to visit when I go back home. "The whole place looks like an old artist painting" and it's no wonder it has always been an inspiration to visitors, tourists, painters, photographers, writers and poets. Kastel is the oldest historical monument in the city and archeologists confirm that the remains of Neolithic settlement were found there. It is Banja Luka's main attraction, situated on the left banks of the Vrbas River. I hope my artsy view on Kastel will give the audience the feel of the Roman settlement Castra, or maybe feel from the times of Turkish occupation and number of oriental type objects, to Austro-Hungarian-Turkish wars, and to today's date.
