Art creation is love, magic and addiction. Struggle, joy, doubt, absorption.
I create painted, mostly figurative, finely stylized collages, in which I supplement the characters with customary and my own symbols. The idea is also indicated through the placement of elements in an environment in which they do not seem to belong, the expression and attitude of the figures, personification of abstract concepts, the mood of the landscape, the color, the technique used, the delicacy of the structure or shape of the base, or references to cultural contexts. I connect the real and the imaginary.
I deal with interpersonal relations, human rights or social problems, but also fairy tales and myths, which have fascinated me since my artistic beginnings. These centuries-old stories are gateways to other worlds. In realistic works, I look for subtle melancholic beauty in the world that surrounds us.
The art movements that attract me most are magic realism, surrealism, pop surrealism, romanticism and symbolism. I admire works from the period of Belle Epoque, Art Nouveau, Art Deco, Preraffaelites, and Golden age of Illustration and Arts and crafts movement. I am fascinated by science fiction and fantasy.
In my work prevail traditional art techniques: especially oil painting, mixed technique (pencil, watercolor, tempera, crayons), acrylic. I create wall drawings and paintings. I also work in digital painting, photography, design and handmade jewelry, clothing, and home accessories. I enjoy experimenting, interconnecting traditional and digital techniques, trying or inventing new methods.
I was born in 1984 in Žilina. Creation has fascinated me from my childhood. I like to connect a fantasy world with a real world, personify abstract concepts, or express them using symbols.
I have been working as a freelance artist since 2011. I create freely, as well as custom work for clients, mainly using traditional art techniques.
Since 2019, I have been studying painting at the Academy of Arts in Banská Bystrica.
Most often I create oil paintings, drawings, or I combine different techniques.
I am married and live with my husband in Turie near Žilina, Slovakia, where I also have my studio.
