    Concept of the artworks


    I arrived at Art after learning Art Journaling as an Experiential Tool for Cultural Tours I wanted to guide. I fell in love with collage works, starting in my privet journals, not meant for public eyes.


    I started with a single central image and the compositions started to grow forced me to add papers to my art journal. But the space was not enough, and I felt I must start working outside of the journal.


    I never plan my collage ahead, they kind of crating themselves in the process of the work. It may seem like color and paper are the building blocks of a collage, but my collages are built slowly, layer by layer, from the blocks of my soul with layers of colors to combine them. I used to write stories and short stories. I than tried to tell a story only in one sentence. Now with my collage work, I can tell a story with no words, only with images and colors. Each collage holds as many stories as there are unique viewers and independent viewing. Each looking reveals something new – creating a new story.
