I was born in Apatin, West District of Serbia. My family and I moved to Sisak in Croatia. At school I loved loved painting and my artwork was displayed in my primry school until long after I finished there.When civil war erupted in 1992, me and my family left everything behand and migrated to Melbourne, Australia. I worked very hard to start a new life in a new country, to make up for the loss of my past life. I was very close to realising my dreem, when in 2002 I suffered a fall at work that has impacted on my ability to drive or move about feely or easily.
I recalled my childhood passion for art and started to paint. I taught myself to paint. Inspiration came from anywhere and everywere.Family is very important to me and my dauther and grenchildren are included in many of my paintings. I am inspired by nature and I love using anything unusual to create combinations of real and unreal imagined flowers and landscapes.
The paintings represent the journeys, places, times, stages, fascination and feelings that make up my life.When I retired in 2010, I moved from Melbourne (Victoria) to Leeton (NSW) and contuinued with my passion for painting.
Since I took up painting I had several exibitions - somme in Melbourne and somme in Leeton.
