I am a visual artist from Montenegro and a naturalized French citizen. I was born in 1977 in Podgorica, to a Macedonian mother and Serbo-Montenegrin father. My childhood took place against the backdrop of the diverse and beautiful landscape of ex-Yugoslavia.
After the overthrow and dissolution of my country and after studying at the Academy of Fine Art in Cetinje, I move to France. I graduated in 2001 and received my MA in 2003 at the Academy of Fine Art in Tours (DNSEP of ESBA-TALM Tours). In 2006 I met Annie Catelas and her husband Xavier, leader of CLEN, who allowed me to use their disused factory in Saint-Pierre-des-Corps as a workshop. There began the project of Ateliers de la Morinerie. My engagement in the adventure of the birth and development of this creative space and also the opportunity to work in it, meant that I stayed a long time in Touraine.
In 2017 we decided to move with my family back to Montenegro. We spent nine months in artist residency in Stari Bar. After this experience, we move to Munich.
I have been living and working in the area since then.
My work is part of numerous private collections and some public collections, including that of the City of Tours.
I have also started to work in illustration and published my first book for children and adults There will be days (Il y aura des Jours).
