About the artist
Originally from Sofia, Bulgaria, I came to Australia 17 years ago with my Australian husband, who I met in London a few years prior. We settled in Melbourne and after almost ten years in 2014 moved our young family of three boisterous boys to beautiful Noosa on the Sunshine Coast. We have since enjoyed life in this amazing part of the world, which now are lucky enough to call home. I consider myself a child of the world, a free spirited hippy at heart with a touch of a Latin soul. Having traveled extensively when I was young and having lived in different parts of the world including Cuba, Argentina and London I have learned to love the richness of cultures, tradition, colours and uniqueness. I draw inspiration from the world that surrounds me as well as my childhood memories from unique people, places and encounters. Travelling and moving from place to place, has shaped who I have become as a person and an Artist. Art has always been a big part of my life. I have loved drawing and painting from an early age and have always admired art, design, interiors, fashion and all things beautiful. While I had to put aside my passion for some years now in order to focus on my family, my yearning for creative expression has been building within my soul. I’ve now finally found the space to return to painting and the feeling is totally overwhelming in the most wonderful of ways. I hope you enjoy my art as much as I enjoy making it. Love, Lidia
