By reading this page, you are already understanding the importance of continuous learning and having mentors on your creative journey.


I'M HERE TO HELP YOU MASTER THE UNIVERSAL LANGUAGE OF VISUAL ART.


WHY WORK WITH ME?

I deliver professional practices to talented creatives, like You by simplifying your workflow, teaching the solid foundations of basics, building confidence, and giving feedback on your art with suggestions for improvement.

With over 5+ years of experience in transforming my business from a hobby to a side-hustle next to my full-time job, my efforts paid off and today I can call myself a full-time entrepreneur.


I worked as a professional in multiple countries across Europe, experiencing various market-specific needs depending on the location of my clients. This international experience gave me a unique vision and approach that I can use to deliver exceptional work via effective processes that turned over 50% of my clients into returning customers.


My life took a U-turn in 2020 and as a result, I relocated between 3 countries and re-established my business at each step, right in the middle of the pandemic. I know what it takes to get my name out to a new market and start all over again from ground zero. Life never gave me any shortcuts, this is why I can help you with a realistic approach and teach you how to crawl, walk and run before being ready to fly.


If I managed to pull this through you can do it too!

She is not only a professional photographer but a brilliant teacher and coach. I can not recommend her services enough.”
